SELF-DEFENCE TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
After focused group discussions with young people in 2014, we developed a pilot programme in partnership with a skilled martial artist to equip young people and women with skills to protect themselves in an abusive or crisis situation. The training also provides an opportunity for networking and making new friends.
We have successfully trained 60 young people and women. One of the trainees in the programme said, “The workshop was empowering. It helped me rediscover myself, believe in myself and boosted my confidence. I feel I can protect myself from violence and sexual harassment. Every woman should learn or be trained in self-defense”. We hope to train more young people and women.
