"I Decide" at the Delhi Book Fair
The India Trade Promotion Organization, and the Federation of Indian Publishers, became the latest partners of the project G86 during the 12th Delhi Book Fair in Delhi from 16th - 24th September 2006. The federation, as a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, provided the project with a stall, where the "I Decide" campaign could spread its messages.
The annual fair draws many youngsters as well as literary adults. These pictures capture the enthusiastic response received by the products created under this joint UNODC and Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment project.

The school students and many older people proudly walked around the fair wearing their "I Decide" badges while the brochures were devoured eagerly by readers wanting more information on issues around drug abuse.
Several hundred people signed up to be part of the "I Decide" campaign. The response validates the need for accurate information and the keenness of young people to be empowered against drug abuse and HIV prevention.
