The SANA Badge Scheme was introduced in 1977 to create awareness of the substance abuse. The Scheme provides information on substance abuse, their consequences and how they can handle situations when faced with temptations without turning to substance abuse.
Students learn that apart from government agencies and community partners, individuals too have an important role in keeping our country free from the perils of drugs and substance abuse.
The course ends with an online assessment where each student receives a customised SANA Badge.
In 2018, we piloted the tier-based proficiency system, comprising 3 tiers – Bronze, Silver and Gold. In the Bronze stage, students attend a half-day workshop and are required to pass an online assessment. Silver and Gold tiers are targeted at promoting advocacy. Students are encouraged to take on activities / projects that involve civic engagement and collective action in the community. With the new enhancement, SANA hopes to further engage and rally young individuals as anti-drug advocates.
