Challenge

The project deals with the potentially crippling effects peer pressure, bullying, harassment, violence, and abuse can have on the health, social, and academic skill development of vulnerable children and those facing special life challenges. We focus on reaching out to individuals who are undervalued in society; who are seen as being the least capable of protecting themselves and who are often the most vulnerable to being bullied, harassed, molested, or assaulted.

Solution

It is aimed at equipping the girl children with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experiences to keep themselves emotionally and physically safe; help forge new patterns in social interaction; promote healthy life styles and choices; and overcome other barriers in reaching their highest social, physical, and intellectual potential by building their boundary-setting, self-advocacy, and positive peer interaction skills in a way that is effective, not fear-based, positive, and fun.

Long-Term Impact

Furthermore, in order to achieve long-term sustainability, the program provides staff caring for this children with professional trainings and individualized follow-up coaching on how to teach core Kidpower skills on their own and how to incorporate them into their curricula or standard practices on an ongoing basis.
