The students at Orbit International School for Boys in Khobar, Saudi Arabia investigated the important issue of smoking in collaboration with the Ramsey School in Ramsey, NJ, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem of smoking, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“Learning to say NO is very important for youngsters. Peer pressure will not disappear, so you should be strong enough to overcome it…it is time for you to be ambassadors to all the people in your lives."
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. It is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
