Kasak's inspirational journey

Kasak during the self-defence classes
Kasak during the self-defence classes

Hear from Kasak in her own words as to how self-defence classes have improved her confidence and changed her life:

 

"I live in Nagpur. Once, while I was walking home with my friends, a guy followed me and asked for my phone number. I refused to give it to him after which he held my wrist tightly and asked again. I was terrified and numb. Even though I did not give him my number, he sourced it from someone else and started harassing me with his phone calls.

After a while, I met Manisha and she motivated me to join the self defense classes. Apart from learning self-defence techniques, I shared my problems with our trainer, Manisha. She gave me the confidence to answer this guy's calls and warn him to not harass me any more. I mustered all the confidence that I had and confronted this person on the call and threatened to call the police if he continues to harass me. After this incident, he never tried to call or follow me again. I will recommend every girl to join these self defence classes."

We are proud of girls like Kasak who are willing to change their lives and learn to say an emphatic 'NO' whenever the need to do so arises. 

Help us continue supporting girls like Kasak in the future. 

 

Regards,

Karuna Team
