Education in substance abuse should be an ongoing process with strict quality controls and evaluation procedures to ensure that quality training is imparted to students and teachers.

There was a consensus that there exists a disconnect between research, policy and practice which requires urgent redressal.
Other issues of concern which were raised and discussed were the stringent penalties of the NDPS Act, the pathetic condition in the rehabilitation centres, and the quest for alternatives which has to be paced up if the country is to make any headway in managing substance abuse disorders.

Workshop on Mensural Hygiene
- Date: 8 Aug 2018
- Topic: Workshop on Mensural Hygiene
- Category: Education
- Location:SKV Chavla, Near Dwarka
Team RISE foundation organized workshop on Mensural Hygiene at Delhi Govt. School SKV, Chawla, New Delhi in association with Action India NGO. Team RISE has been working towards Menstrual Hygiene Management and in response to the low awareness levels and lack of access to sanitary products, it organised a workshop to build a strong and enabling environment to improve menstrual health and hygiene.
Stigma around menstruation and menstrual hygiene is a violation of several human rights, most importantly of the right to human dignity, but also the right to non-discrimination, equality, bodily integrity, health, privacy and the right to freedom from inhumane and degrading treatment from abuse and violence.
Team RISE worked on first educating the mothers, realising they are the principal point of contact when a girl first gets her period. It also identified the associated healthcare practices; the unavailability of material to safely manage periods; and a lack of access to toilets. It ensured that adolescent girls and women have the necessary support from society, communities and families and break the silence around menstruation. Educating and discussing with adolescent boys, male teachers and parents contribute to a supportive environment for adolescent girls in school and at home. Working with boys also helps to ensure that girls are free from ridicule and treated with respect and dignity throughout their school life and beyond. Lastly, it emphasised also on the safe disposal of the menstrual waste and various safe disposal options.
Thanks to Geeta Dutt, Sangita Pandey & Deepak Bhardwaj for managing the show from Team RISE.

Workshop on POCSO Act with Delhi State Legal Authority(DSLA) conducted at Govt Sr Secondary School, Sector-6 Site 1 with 10th class students.
During workshop students learnt about POCSO Act (‘Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences Bill )
Some important fact about POCSO:
1. It came into existence on May 22,2012
2. A protection to child below eighteen years of age, to ensure the healthy physical, emotional, intellectual and social development of the child.
3. It defines different forms of sexual abuse, including penetrative and non-penetrative assault, sexual harassment and pornography, and deems a sexual assault to be “aggravated” under certain circumstances, such as when the abused child is mentally ill or when the abuse is committed by a person in a position of trust or authority vis-à-vis the child, like a family member, police officer, teacher, or doctor.
4.The Act prescribes stringent punishment graded as per the gravity of the offence, with a maximum term of rigorous imprisonment for life, and fine.
Do you know…????? 53% of children in India face some form of child sexual abuse.
Let’s fight together ….and make our society better and safe place for our children.

बच्चो को पढ़ाते पढ़ाते एक दिन उनकी माताओं के पूछा गया कि वो क्या सीखना चाहती है तो सबने एक स्वर में बोला हम भी पढ़ना चाहते है बस यही एक सपना है | यही से एक नयी शुरुवात हुई और JJC क्लस्टर की महिलाओं ने पढ़ना शुरू कर दिया और मात्र ३ से ४ महीने में सभी हिंदी का अख़बार पढ़ने लगी | यह कमाल हुआ सिर्फ उनकी दृढ़ इच्छाशक्ति से, तभी तो कहते है कि कोई भी सपना जादू से पूरा नहीं होता, उसे पूरा करने के लिए दृढ संकल्प और कठिन परिश्रम की ज़रुरत होती है। हमारी महिलाओं ने इसी का परिचय दिया और अपने साक्षर होने के सपने को पूरा किया।
मंज़िल उन्ही को मिलती है, जिनके सपनो में जान होती है।
पंख से कुछ नहीं होता, हौसलों से उड़ान होती है।
