The Eastern Cape Liquor Board (ECLB) cordially invites you to the school ambassador launch targeting ten school pupils in Mnquma Local Municipality.
In its endeavour to intensify the fight against underage drinking in schools, ECLB will be launching a school ambassador’s to fight underage drinking. This initiative will intensify the fight alcohol abuse in schools and assist to streamline the awareness and educations where peers will be teaching each other on matters of underage drinking.
Alcohol abuse among young pupils continues to cause havoc in schools, and high crime statistics are attributed to alcohol/substance abuse in the area. Also this platform will be used to make young girls aware about alcohol related social challenges that affect women such as Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), Rape and diseases associated with alcohol abuse.
The launch will be followed by a drama, debate and public speaking tournament that will be amongst ten schools from around Butterworth schools, competing on alcohol related issues on the following day.
Media is, therefore, cordially invited to be part of the campaign to fight alcohol abuse in schools and assist to spread the message of underage drinking “Booze is not for learners”.
