LOT Drug – Prevention and reduction of drug use among young people is a project initiated by Romanian Angel Appeal in 2004 as part of a series of European projects dedicated to young people. The primary objective is to prevent and reduce drug use and its effects among schoolchildren and young people.
Period: 2004 – 2006 (3 years);
The goal of the project was to contribute to reducing drug use and the associated risks among young people, thus leading to limiting public health issues.
Sponsor: Regione Piemonte – Italy
Project beneficiaries: 36 students from 3 high schools in Bucharest who were trained as per educators and, indirectly, all high school students from Bucharest.
The leading idea of the LOT-Drug project is to involve a group of students from 3 high schools in information and prevention activities, addressed both to them and to their respective groups – high school students from Bucharest.
At the end of the project, both challenges and results were made public. The kind of intervention developed by Romanian Angel Appeal can be an important starting point in replicating the model at regional or national level, actively involving young people and local authorities.
