Children are the world’s most valuable resource and the best hope for the future. Therefore, all of us in the community has a paramount duty to protect them from their threats. One of the most dangerous threats for children at the present moment is drugs. The schools play an important role when it comes down to protecting children against child threats. Threats are one of the principal reasons why children don’t tend to educate, and it is also one of the causes of the alarming school dropout rates.
After considering the above situation, Leos of University of Moratuwa with the collaboration of the Leos of the University of Colombo Alumni organized a drug prevention and child protection seminar for the second time. This time, we conducted the seminar session at Kithulampitiya Ananda Vidyalaya on 27th February from 11.00 a.m. onwards.
We got massive support and guidance from the Galle police station to conduct this seminar session fruitfully. At the end of the seminar session, we were delighted with the feedback and comments of not only from the police station but also the school community.
