Pasig City's Anti-Drug Office Conducts Campus Tours
In a bid to address the critical issue of substance abuse among the youth, Pasig City's Anti-Drug Abuse Office (PCADAO) has taken an innovative approach under the guidance of Mayor Vico Sotto. By initiating campus tours, the office aims to educate and raise awareness among students about the dangers of illegal drugs, recognizing the pivotal role of education in combating the drug menace.
With the campus tours serving as a key component of the city's anti-drug strategy, PCADAO and its resource persons have been actively engaging with students in various schools, fostering discussions and imparting crucial knowledge to help students make informed decisions and steer clear of the dangers of substance abuse.
During a recent visit to Dela Paz, the enthusiasm of the grade 6 students was palpable. Despite the lively atmosphere, a minor incident occurred where a few students were accidentally bumped, fortunately without any serious injuries. This incident highlighted the need for comprehensive drug education and preventive measures, prompting the office to reinforce its commitment to creating a safe and secure environment for the youth in Pasig City.
Mayor Vico Sotto expressed his deep commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of the city's youth, emphasizing the importance of early intervention and education in deterring the proliferation of illicit substances among the younger generation. He underscored the necessity of such programs and initiatives to equip students with the knowledge and awareness needed to make informed choices, safeguarding their future against the perils of substance abuse.
