Development through Awareness
Fighting Knife and Drug Crime: The involvement of young people in knife crime seems to be increasing in the United Kingdom at a rapid rate. Evidences has proved that both boys and girls are carrying weapons, and are being drawn into gangs and exploited by drug dealers. The huge increase in Drug and Knife Crime from the past few years in the United Kingdom has become a worrying situation for the common people and a big concern for the authorities. Every other day reports of stabbing, robbery and crimes are being committed and witnessed. The main focus lies on why the young generation is getting involved in such kind of acts. What are the reasons that prompt the younger generation to do such acts? Is it increase in such crime due to the increase in Unemployment, Gang Wars or the intent to Making Quick money?
For every citizen the question is how we can solve this problem, protect our youth from these crimes and improvise the situation to make our communities safe for living. Keeping in view all the present situations in mind, Mother Helpage planned and took an initiative to Fight Knife and Drug Crime. In December 2018 Mother Helpage successfully launched its campaign against Knife and Drug Crime Prevention in collaboration with Jawaid Khaliq MBE at The Jawaid Khaliq Boxing Academy Nottingham. The aim of this initiative was to make people, more so the youth aware of the menace that is ruining the lives of youth and in turn our societies. The motive was to provide the masses especially the youth; with the counselling, guidance and develop the spirit of sports among youth so that they will refrain themselves from getting involved in such kind of acts.
Drug De-Addiction Rallies: One of the major concerns in our present lives is Drug Addiction that is engulfing our society at a very rapid rate. Unfortunately the youth is getting involved in this menace that is ruining their lives. In order to combat this menace Mother Helpage organised drug de-addiction rallies in different parts of Jammu and Kashmir. The main aim of this initiative was to create awareness for the local residents, especially the youth about this menace so that they can protect themselves from it and be better citizens of society. Moreover, The Mother Helpage Founder visited schools, colleges and villages in Jammu and Kashmir embedding the special focus on how to combat these criminal menaces together and prevent our children from getting involved in such kind of illegal and harmful acts.
