Start date: Jul 20, 2015,
End date: Feb 19, 2016
Increasing drug prices in the world made manufacturers to produce cheaper and different areas. One of them is the bonzai. Bonzai, the starting point of our project for the first time emerged in Germany in 2002, after Spain it appeared in Australia. Bonzai is a substance which is getting widespread among young people. The reason why this substance is thought as a natural and herbal is that the young people do not have enough information about the chemical content and harmful effects o this substance.
Bonzai, which ruins the life of young people who will build the world of our future, still cant be understood as a dangerous substance in public. The news from time to time, reveals the importance of the event. However, this news is inadequate so that people can understand the danger of this product and also inadequate about the awareness of people. Although Macro-level studies have been done on the usage of this product which appears as a danger in our age, there is no micro level studies which will prevent the patential users to stop using this substance. We decided to make a fire in our own ways and prepared this project for young people who are insurance of our future to save them from this terrible problem and to prevent potential users. In our project, with the application of peer education model we aim to save the young people from this danger and we aim to take the potential bomzai users away from this addiction.
In this context, the main objective of our project is to fight with bonzai addiction.
