Our HOPE journey until now...

Hey peeps,

With the new day comes another post by HOPE!! 

All of you know about HOPE from our Facebook and Instagram pages (if you haven't seen them yet, do check them out right away!!)

What you don't know is how this journey started!!!

Now Hope did start with an idea by our director sir. He started discussions in our 10th grade classes about how he wanted to start this campaign.

And our 10th grade class enthusiastic as it is agreed to participate immediately (partly because it meant skipping a few classes here and there :-P )
But as the campaign progressed we started getting serious about it. We designed our own posters and put them up around the school.
We planned a couple of experiments to be done in classes to show the effects of tobacco. We then practiced these experiments but let me tell you this practice was anything but serious!!

We showed presentations to every class from the 6th grade through to the 12th grade. Even the youngest 6th graders now know a good deal about tobacco.


They looked so cute as they listened to the Bhaiyaas and Didis talking about Ganda Ganda tobacco. As the campaign spread around school even the youngest classes where the presentation had not been shown yet started becoming aware about it.In fact a cousin of mine studying in the 3rd grade in our school started talking about going against tobacco at the dinner table.

Peer pressure is one of the leading causes for teenagers to start smoking. We had a session with the senior classes where the school's old students shared their experiences about peer pressure and tobacco.


The latest news at hope is that we are holding an exhibition

 for the VISMA students and their parents.

Wait up for the next post about the exhibition. 
Until then....
Stay tobacco free...stay happy!!
