You’ve read the headlines about abuse, rape, and crimes against women and girls in India.
Empowering Girls is how Ayesha Noor decided to fight back. It’s a 3-6 month self-defence training class for girls. Ayesha – a 3-time gold medallist in karate – teaches 80 young women at a time from poor areas how to defend themselves using ancient techniques and disciplines.
The second part of Empowering Girls focuses on the mind and the workplace. The girls gain job skills ranging from stitching to computers. They also get help with their school work.
Her program is a huge success and empowers every participant by training their minds and bodies to protect and believe in themselves.
These girls, from ages 8-20, could never afford self-defence training from a pro like Ayesha. But with your help, they all can. An entire year’s worth of training – for the entire class – costs just £2000!
