As part of the ongoing ‘drug-free Kerala’ campaign of Vimukthi Mission, Janamaithri wing of the Excise Department has launched a football coaching program for tribal students in the district.
The project aims at promoting the sporting talent of tribal youth and motivate them to lead a healthy and focussed life by steering clear of addictive drugs and intoxicants.
The program, launched by Devikulam unit of Janamaithri wing of the Excise Department with the support of Scheduled Tribes Development Department and Adimali Panchayat, also seeks to spread the drug-free message to entire tribal communities by molding children as influencers.
A total of 66 children from tribal hamlets and Tribal Hostel in Adimali were selected for the training. The coaching sessions, led by former Santhosh Trophy footballer Shri. Salim Kutty, will be held on Saturdays and Sundays.
Recently, four students were selected to the Junior Blasters team, out of 30 children who attended the selection camp for Idukki district.
The excise department has chalked out several programs to engage tribal youth creatively in their free time so that they can be prevented from falling prey to addictive substances.
