More than 100 sports teachers will attend NADO anti-doping course at the AFG-NOC premises in Kabul.
With the majority of schoolchildren attending the Olympic day of the year 2015, NADO will take advantage of some downtime in the curriculum to educate teachers on the dangers of doping within a wider theme of health and sports.
WADA’s Outreach Model will be used to support the event as both secondary and primary school teachers will be given information packs containing anti-doping leaflets and a guide on how best to facilitate group discussions with students on the dangers of doping.
Teachers are an important channel through which we can reach children and youngsters who are at the early stages of their sporting careers and it is vital that young people get the necessary anti-doping education at the right time and this was the ideal opportunity to educate the educators on the dangers of doping.
NADO initiatives will be so important since they promote clean sport and also help prevent the unintentional use of doping substances.
