What Our Trainees Have To Say About Us
"This was really a life changing experience for me...it really boosted my confidence levels. It is important for girls to know how to tackle these situations- you have to be mentally, physically and emotionally prepared"
"This training has been the best gift of my life. Due to the knowledge gained during the training I was able to save myself from three boys who tried to attack me physically."
"People usually consider girls week and I being a girl wanted to show the world that I can do something for myself and protect my self esteem and self image from attackers"
"Every girl in Nepal and the world should be getting this training"
"This is the first time I’m taking such training. It was my mom who insisted to take this training. I was not very sure because I have to leave work to attend this training. But fortunately this training has become a life changing experience for me.
I was a very shy girl with low self-confidence but now I feel confident and assertively talk to anyone who tries to harass me.
This training is beneficial not just for us adolescent girls but for women as well.
The formulas for safety will be of great use now and in the future.
I will talk about this training to my friends, sisters and also my brothers."
"I came here because I know this training would be of great help. Adolescent girls are the main target for eve-teasing and harassment. After coming to this training I learnt about criminals and different ways to identify them. I learnt about danger zones and the 20 sec formula. I also l learnt about modifying natural reflexes into SOS blocks. I have found a new sense of confidence in me. I also came to know about different color codes of awareness.
I used to walk with music on with earphones on my ears but now I’ve come to know about the risks of doing that.
This training will help me greatly in future, esp. while travelling on public vehicles."

"I never knew about such training program before and taking a part in this training I feel very lucky. We learnt safety measures regarding sexual harassment, rapes and way to avoid them. After taking this training the cases of sexual harassment and rapes will definitely decrease.
This training helped me to identify if someone is following me and steps to avoid and I also learnt how I could avoid being sexually harassed or even raped. Prior to this training I never bothered latching my doors and windows, I used to be alone in the house but after the training I latch my doors and windows and try not to stay alone in the house anymore."

"I have never enrolled this kind of training before but we need such trainings in our life. Most of the time, we used to be attacked, sexually harassed but we couldn’t do anything about it, we would quietly walk away but now we know how to verbally pacify the situation. Now after this training, we know the different techniques to safeguard ourselves in public vehicles as well. Well, we could forget a lot of other things but we could not forget about defending ourselves while being in such vulnerable situations. Thus, we will never forget this training and will also help my friends and sisters against sexual violence."
I not only learnt the physical aspects of self-defense but mental and vocal as well. I feel glad that the safety skills learnt here can be used in everyday life."
We read vulnerable news, we hear them every single day. Young girls like us have always become victim of harrasment. The fight back traning is like a fairy God Mother for all the girls. My idea towards fight back is that its not like we haven't faced harassments so we don't care. It should be more like we haven't faced it and there will be one day when no women will face harassment.
