On 07 December 1987, the United Nations General Assembly issued a resolution declaring the 26th of June of every year as the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDADAIT). It aims to strengthen action and cooperation in achieving the goal of a world free of drug abuse. For this year, since the date of the IDADAIT 2022 falls on a Sunday, the celebration will be held on 27 June 2022 (Monday), instead.
Driven by its mission: Ensure Improvement of Quality of Life in Benguet, the Province of Benguet obtained a human development index of 0.883 in 2009. The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
