Summary

Our self-defence courses in Nagpur support women and girls in overcoming violent or precarious situations with strength and self-defence skills. Here, they learn the simple tricks and tips to respond proactively in a situation under which they are stalked, 'eve-teased', groped or face other forms of violence. Alone in 2019, 306 young girls gained the self-confidence to raise their voices against the harassment and injustice meted to them. 'Wenlido' courses are part of Prabodhini project.

Challenge

Every 62 minutes a woman is murdered in India. Women and girls face physical, sexual and emotional violence in private and public spaces. As per sources, 77% of women who have experienced sexual or physical violence never tell anyone due to a culture of shame surrounding this issue. Despite some progressive changes in legislation, women still suffer from violence. Hence, strengthening self-confidence and practical self-defence skills of women is a crucial part of this project.

Solution

Prabodhini projects offers training in order to mould young girls and women into being brave and assertive. The training will not only assist these students in becoming aware of their surroundings, but increase their self-confidence and sense of safety in difficult circumstances. Such skills will help women to generate a sense of autonomy and assert that their lives and bodies are their own.The most effective tricks and kicks to ward off attackers can be vital in emergency situations.

Long-Term Impact

The project is a tiny step towards equipping these women to not tolerate any unfair treatment. This project in a medium sized city like Nagpur and the satellite towns surrounding it can trigger a ripple effect of positive change in mindsets and behaviours regarding violence against women. The core agenda of this project is to empower girls in the area of self-defence. Our aim is to make sure that every women & girl can walk fearlessly in this society and able to protect herself.
