Project Report | Feb 14, 2019
our next self defense weekend course

By Hannah Starfish Foundation | Self defense weekend for refugee women.

We are pleased to announce that a self-defense weekend for refugee women is taking place in Mytilene town on the island of Lesvos, on the 16th and 17th of February 2019

Margarita Founariotaki from Athens, Greece who is an official International Krav Maga Federation instructor, will be our special guest and teacher. 

Women living in refugee camps are enormously vulnerable, because they are a minority surrounded by men with insecure futures : this often causes stress and frustration that is expressed in agression. For this reason Starfish Foundation organises self-defense courses for women only.

During the course the women will learn how to say NO in a clear way, how to be aware of their surroundings and to prevent and respond to specific threats, including emotional, physical and sexual harassment.
