We, the members of the Rotaract Club of KSOM, are back with another ZERO BUDGET event that we conducted on the occasion of “National Girl Child Day” called “AATMARAKSHA: Self-defence event”. Sharing a glimpse of our successful event organised on 24th of January 2023. The aim of this event was to spread awareness about the importance of self-protection among young and school-going girls. One of our members, Tanisha Dutta who is a professional in Karate, took the initiative to teach them some basic self-defense techniques to help young girls defend themselves in various challenging situations. Our other members assisted by demonstrating the techniques as well.
Self-defence is the act of protecting oneself, one’s possessions, or another person from bodily injury. Women’s lives depend heavily on self defence. Women’s physical incapabilities frequently cause them to become victims. By using self-defence tactics, they can take charge of scenarios where they might otherwise become the target of physical or verbal abuse, among other things. These methods also boost confidence in realising that you should stop someone if they cross your boundaries.
It was a great privilege for our club to organize this event in the premises of KISS – Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences and we would like to extend our heartfelt regards to Supriya ma’am for being a close contact with us which ultimately helped us to organize this event and also to give us a tour of the campus and also a chance to interact with such talented kids.
