You’ve read the headlines about abuse, rape, and crimes against women and girls in India.
Though this program is no longer in operation, for several years Remedia used the Empowering Girls charity to teach girls self-confidence through karate. It was a 3-6 month self-defence training class taught by Ayesha Noor – a 3-time gold medallist in karate.
The Empowering Girls program also focused on the mind and the workplace. The girls gained job skills ranging from stitching to computers. They also got help with their school work.
Remedia’s E3 Job Growth program now operates 6-month vocational training courses that teach many more skills to women of all ages who want jobs but don’t have the skills.
