The program also focuses on developing the girls’ confidence, a positive body language and self- image. It not only makes them aware of possible situations where Gender-based Violence can occur, but also provides them with a skill-set to defend themselves against such violence often as first-responders.

Trainers from the police, U.P. Karate Association and NGOs have contributed in making the program a big success and is very much in demand amongst the girl students.
