Taking Tata Tea's ‘pre-activism’ campaign miles ahead by empowering 1 lakh+ girls from 340 schools

How we empowered girls to take safety in their own hands with a dedicated self-defense education program


A strong self-defence program was ideated and implemented in schools for girls between the age group of 10-16 years. The program is aimed at building physical skills in the form of combat practices and mental makeup to handle stress. A variety of self-defence techniques were taught to the girls by experts with a live demo, like elbow strike, chop attack, tiger grip, push kick and knife defense. This was later practiced by the girls who displayed immense dedication and enthusiasm during the entire learning process.
