Tobacco is a significant public health risk faced by youth in rural India. In rural India around 15% youths use tobacco. Tobacco use is commonly seen on school premises across the state. As per GATS data tobacco consumption rate is 26.6% in Maharashtra and we all are working together to make schools tobacco free.
Since 2010 the Swa. Rukhmabai Pal Bahu-uddeshiya Sikshan Sanstha, Wardha began a tobacco-free schools initiative in Chandrapur district, Maharshtra state. Awareness meetings were held with the teachers, students, villagers and officers to build motivation to promote the tobacco-free schools programme. District-level workshops were held in partnership with Salaam Mumbai foundation. As a master trainers we counducted trainings for the teachers and health workers also. Even trained collage students and motivated them to be tobacco free.
