Dubai Indian Consulate launches drive to inspire children

INTERabThe Indian Consulate in Dubai is to set up Swatantara units in schools to motivate children and expand a campaign against smoking, drinking and drug addiction that was originally launched among students, and that will be launched for blue-collar workers as well.

Consul General Anurag Bhushan said the mission will extend the scope of the Swatantara campaign that it recently launched in collaboration with a group of doctors, to benefit a larger spectrum of the community.

Swantantra stands for Students Working Against Tobacco, Alcohol, Narcotics and Related Abuses.
