THE PROBLEM


 

Growing up as a rebel teenager, Khai Aziz started to smoke and use drug at the age of 14. But he quits at the age of 21 when he saw the effects of drugs on his brother, leading to his family being torn apart and his mother facing negative judgement and pressured from people in the village they lived in, his mother also faced depression and had been traumatised for several years.

They decided to move to an isolated area to prevent his brother from relapsing again, protecting him from triggering by the pressure of his old friends, finally they managed to succeed after four years of rehabilitation and his brother got the strength back and started a new family. In addition to his experience with his family, many of his friends were drawn to drugs, some of them are in the rehab and some died.

But the turning point in his life is when he went to a fishing village to rescue a girl who will be sold by her own father for drug money. From that day, he started his war with DRUG!

With the current statistic by National Anti Drug Agency (AADK) showing that 23% of total drug user in 2017 are youth from 13-24 years old, it is time we revisit and reevaluate the strategy to implement awareness campaign among youth.

The old strategy of talk, seminar and awareness campaign doesn’t give enough impact to the youth. They need something more appealing to their liking such as music, art, theater and film. You can view the documentary about his support and passion in this cause here: https://www.scientology.tv/series/voices-for-humanity/clips/khai-aziz-trailer.html

And DYFA will innovate a new way to the boring drug campaign awareness in hopes to save more youth from trying and involve in drugs.

THE SOLUTION


In Untoxicated Youth Tour, Drug Free Youth Association (DYFA) aim to make a tour around 10 Malaysian schools in hopes to reach out to students in the way that they EXPERT at!

Khai Aziz, known as Ein the Straight Edge scene is singer in a band called Second Combat. He is also the owner of United X Front Records and has dedicated his life to positive work with youth in Malaysia. He will show the kids that it is not necessary to involve drugs when doing music or having fun!

Some of his achievement are:

  • Drug Free World Champion (US) - 2018

  • Ikon Negara for Aktivis Bebas Dadah - 2017

  • Selangor Youth Icon for Music and Entertainment Award - 2017

  • Unsung Heroes Award - 2017

  • The Star, Our Golden Hearts Award - 2016

  • Signing up with a straight edge label ”Commitment Records” from Netherlands - 2006

  • Speaker at TED X Asia - 2014

  • Ambassador for a non-profit organisation in Australia called Untoxicated - 2013.

                          LIVING DRUG FREE LIFESTYLE VIA ART

The support and empowerment program will cater more towards younger generation's scene. Awareness program will be conducted via theater, music and film. The kids will be introduce to lifestyle where they can still having fun, doing what they like and passionate about while not involving drugs.

  4. Bass guitar

  5. Microphone

THE IMPACT


 

“We believe in rebelling through better living. You can be a real punk without wasting your life.” - Khai

To instil a culture that refrains from using alcohol, tobacco and other recreational drugs. Khai and DYFA want to encourage people especially youth to enjoy punk and rock music without being under the influence of the vices most hardcore punk artists are associated with.

TAnd Khai Aziz has been featured by Scientology for his effort in fighting drug abused in Malaysia. Watch his world premier here https://www.scientology.tv/series/voices-for-humanity/khai-aziz.html.

DYFA wants to show that this is not a practice, it is something you live in. It is cool, and that is what gives it an ‘edge’ in the fight against drugs – kids connect and identify to the music, and they look up to the bands. They also believe in advocating abstain from drugs, alcohol, tobacco and promiscuous sex.

The students across Malaysia will be taught to:

- the danger of illegal drugs abuse

- how to make better judgement when drugs is involved

- to live a fun healthy and safe environment without drugs

And ULTIMATELY, to prevent them from taking drugs.

PERMASALAHAN


Sebagai seorang bekas pengguna dadah, Khai Aziz mula merokok dan menggunakan dadah pada usia 13 tahun. Tetapi beliau berhenti pada umur 21 tahun apabila beliau melihat kesan dadah terhadap abangnya, menyebabkan perpecahan keluarga dan ibunya mendapat persepsi negatif dan tekanan daripada orang kampung. Ibu beliau juga mengalami kemurungan dan telah mengalami trauma untuk beberapa tahun.

Mereka mengambil keputusan untuk berpindah ke kawasan terpencil untuk menghalang abangnya daripada berbalik semula kepada dadah, mengelakkan beliau daripada dipengaruhi tekanan rakan-rakan, akhirnya beliau berjaya pulih selepas 4 tahun dalam program rehabilitasi dan abangnya bangkit semula dan memulakan keluarga beliau yang baru. Sebagai tambahan kepada pengalaman beliau bersama keluarga, kebanyakan rakan-rakannya juga terlibat dengan dadah, ada yang berada di rehabilitasi dan ada juga yang meninggal dunia.

Tetapi titik tolak dalam hidup beliau ialah apabila beliau pergi ke perkampungan nelayan untuk menyelamatkan seorang kanak-kanak perempuan yang akan dijual oleh bapanya untuk mendapatkan wang membeli dadah. Sejak hari itu, beliau memulakan peperangan dengan DADAH!

Berdasarkan statistik terbaru daripada Agensi Anti Dadah Malaysia (AADK) didapati bahawa 23% daripada jumlah keseluruhan penagih dadah di Malaysia pada tahun 2017 adalah dalam kalangan beliau berusia 13-24 tahun. Kini sudah tiba masa kita mempertimbangkan semula strategi untuk melaksanakan kempen kesedaran dalam kalangan belia.

Strategi lama seperti mengadakan ceramah, seminar dan kempen kesedaran tidak memberi banyak impak kepada belia. Mereka mahukan sesuatu yang lebih menarik minat mereka seperti muzik, seni, teater, dan filem. Dan DYFA akan menginovasi cara baru kepada kempen kesedaran dadah yang lapuk dan berharap untuk menyelamatkan lebih ramai belia daripada terjerumus ke dalam kancah dadah.


PENYELESAIAN


dalam Untoxicated Youth Tour, Drug Free Youth Association (DYFA) berhasrat untuk mengadakan jelajah ke 10 buah sekolah terpilih di sekitar Malaysia untuk bergaul dengan lebih ramai pelajar dalam cara yang mereka MAHIR!

Khai Aziz juga dikenali sebagai Ein dalam kumpulan Straight Edge merupakan seorang penyanyi di dalam band Second Combat. Beliau merupakan pemilik United X Front record dan telah mendedikasikan hidup beliau untuk kehidupan positif belia Malaysia. Beliau akan menunjukkan kepada belia bahawa tidak semestinya menggunakan dadah apabila bermain muzik atau sedang berseronok!

Beberapa pencapaian beliau adalah:
  • Ikon Negara bagi Aktivis Bebas Dadah 2017

  • Menandatangani perjanjian bersama label straight edge “Commitment Record” dari Belanda pada 2006

  • Pembentang di TED X Asia 2014

  • Duta kepada organisasi bukan berkeuntungan di Australia iaitu Untoxicated 2013.


LIVING DRUG FREE LIFESTYLE VIA ART


Program pemerkasaan dan sokongan ini akan menjurus kepada minat generasi muda. Program kesedaran akan dilaksanakan melalui pementasan teater, muzik dan filem. Pelajar akan didedahkan dengan gaya hidup dimana mereka masih boleh berseronok, melakukan apa yang mereka sukai tanpa melibatkan dadah.

Untuk memaksimakan impak jelajah ini, DYFA akan mengumpul dana bagi:

  • Dram

  • Amplifier

  • Gitar

  • Gitar Bass

  • Mikrofon

  • Kos bagi jelajah ke 10 buah sekolah seluruh Malaysia

  • Modul pemerkasaan dan sokongan

  • Kit Straight Edge, dilengkapi CD dan buku daripada seminar.


IMPAK


Anda masih boleh menjadi punk tanpa membazirkan hidup anda” - Khai

Untuk memupuk budaya menahan diri daripada menggunakan alkohol, tembakau dan pelbagai jenis dadah lain. Khai dan DYFA mahu menggalakkan orang ramai terutamanya belia untuk menikmati muzik punk dan rock tanpa terjebak dalam dadah seperti kebanyakan artis punk yang lain.

DYFA ingin menunjukkan bahawa ini bukan sekadar latihan, ia merupakan cara hidup. Ia juga cool, dan memberi ‘edge’ dalam perjuangan menentang dadah - belia senang dan sukakan muzik dan mereka akan terikut dengan band kegemaran mereka. Mereka juga percaya dalam berjuang menentang penggunaan dadah, alkohol, tembakau dan seks bebas.

Pelajar di serata Malaysia akan diajar untuk:
  • Bahaya penyalahgunaan dadah

  • Bagaimana untuk membuat pertimbangan yang lebih baik apabila melibatkan dadah

  • Bagaimana untuk hidup dengan sihat dan selamat tanpa melibatkan dadah

Dan PALING PENTING, mengelakkan mereka daripada mengambil dadah.

In short, not taking drugs cool!

In 2005, they register their group as a company after being raid in their event in 2004.They wanted to be a legal group without getting caught in organizing an event.

In 2010, they register as NGO as been advice by the government people. So far to date, they had been organizing more than 50 events and went to almost 250 schools in promoting the drug-free lifestyle and being known internationally for their effort. They had 250 register band members through the years and 10 of them are Straight Edge bands.

Nowadays they looking for more people to participate in their activities and become ambassadors in their area and scene like Post Rock, Hip-Hop, Grunge, Beatbox, Metalcore, Punk-Rock, Skate Punk, ska, Rap core and Hardcore.They knew through art, music and counter culture they could embrace teenagers in accepting the Straight Edge and Drug-Free culture.
