HELP US IN DIVERTING YOUNG BOYS FROM DRUG ABUSE AND CRIME

We are currently running the initiative "Josh". The project aims at diverting young boys & juveniles from Substance Abuse by involving them in Sports, Skill Development & Gender Sensitisation present in high crime- prone slums of Delhi.  The project runs on the M.D.I. formula of psychological counseling, i.e. Motivate, Divert and Involve individuals into activities which are psychologically, physically and socially productive.  

Ongoing Activities

We involve them in intensive physical training and reward-based tournaments. We also provide them a nutritious diet of Banana and Black Chana to improve their stamina.  We engaged them in specially designed interactive motivational sessions for their mental wellness by reducing their consumption of drugs and alcohol which further reduces their chances of involvement in crimes and anti-social activities.

Sustainability 

After the 90 Days physical training and grooming, we enroll them in skill training & employment opportunities for their socio-economic development. Currently, 1000 Boys aged 16 to 20 are benefiting from this program in association with Delhi Police. 
Through this initiative, we wish to build a force of young minds who can be given a platform to rise above their circumstances and build a life beneficial for themselves and society. Each contribution made towards this project will assist us in providing better facilities and assistance to these young boys, leading to a better intervention program.

Background

Addiction to Drugs & Substance Abuse is one of India's most significant social evils striving to win over. It significantly affects the youth, which is considered an asset of any nation.  But, what exactly drives them towards this horrendous practice of drug abuse? 
There could be various reasons, including societal pressure and environment, health, family, abuse, neglect, vengeance, poverty, unemployment, and mental stress being a few. Talking about unemployment, it is one of the most crucial challenges faced by our country today. Even the educated and skilled job-seekers cannot earn employment for themselves, and the dilemmas faced by the illiterate are far worse. The situation prevalent in the slum of India is substandard and unpleasant, owing to the widespread prevalence of poverty and illiteracy in these areas. Unable to cope with the harsh and ruthless realities of life, youth from slum areas, especially the male population, indulge in heavy drug abuse, which has adverse effects on their health. Besides being under the influence of drugs, these  children instigate social malpractices and heinous crimes, including violence against women. 

Adolescents who are involved with wrongdoers or drug abusers often inculcate bad habits. They instigate, engage, and encourage them to consume drugs. Such influence and peer pressure trigger the urge to try the drugs. These are some of the causes of drug addiction among juveniles. 
Drugs, substance abuse, and alcohol stimulate parts of the brain to make someone feel good. But after taking a drug for a while, the brain gets used to it. Then the person needs to take more of the drug to get the same effect. Soon, the brain and body have to take those drugs just to feel normal. Otherwise, it triggers withdrawal symptoms, making the person sick and anxious.
