NGO ALERT-INDIA’s ANNUAL AWARDS DAY Saturday, 25th February 2012, 3.30 p.m, Birla Matushri Sabhagar, Marine Lines
ALERT-INDIA’s school project is an innovative intensive leprosy awareness campaign that includes lectures, exhibitions as well as video films, whereby young minds are made to understand not only the scientific facts about leprosy, but also about the myths and misconceptions surrounding this disease. Thus, creating an ‘aware’ and fearless young generation who in turn would become the messengers themselves, spreading true facts about leprosy and the plight of the leprosy afflicted with compassion and sensitivity.
This year, through 300 schools, involving nearly 1 lac students, a magnificent amount has been raised for the leprosy control work of ALERT-INDIA.
ALERT’s “Annual Awards Day” was organised to felicitate the principals and students who have done outstandingly well to help the cause of ALERT-INDIA.
