Father Michael told them that 79% of what is in social media are fake thus asking the students to refrain from believing whatever they see or hear on social Media. Towards the end of the first session the resource persons informed the participants of the various disadvantages and negative effects brought by social media in the social, mental, physical, spiritual and intellectual growth of a human being.
The second session was on substance addictions. Videos and PowerPoint presentations on tobacco, drugs and alcohol helped the participants to understand what are the substances found in each of them and what effects they have when they are consumed by a human being. The resource persons ended the program with presentations on how AIDS, Cancer, Organ Failures and brain damage happened to a human being when using drugs, tobacco and alcohol.
