Who we are ?
Droga a Ty (Drug and You -DaY), a non-profit NGO, was founded in February,
1995, to address the need for citizen participation in drug prevention activities as the
Slovak Republic moves toward a democratic, market-based economy. Due to legislation
restrictions in Slovakia DaY was re-established as a civic association (community based
organization) in August 1997. Its goal is the drug prevention especially with young people
and inter-personal and inter-ethnic tolerance as well.
Our mission :
Using all communication channels for dissemination of facts that would help young
people exposed to drug offer in right decision. Our key messages are:
- Drugs have been with us through the ages; they are just one of nature’s traps. Behind
this world-wide scourge are people who learned they could make a fortune dealing drugs,
similar to dealing weapons. Take care not to be trapped. Don’t be so stupid as to let
others prosper from your destruction!
- Drug addicts are victims. They are ill people who deserve our respect and help. Keep in
mind that former addicts are among those most devoted to helping others.
- It isn’t just the professionals, e.g., doctors, police, who can help. There is surely
one way YOU can help too. Minor actions performed by millions make history.
