Empowering female students to fight back against crime has been the call of the day. In this modern era, violence against girls has been very common on every street in both rural and urban settings. Small kids, girls, and even women are feeling insecure the moment they are out of their homes for any purpose that
matters. It is very important for every girl and woman to get prepared mentally and physically well equipped with the required skills and techniques to defend themselves from any kind of antisocial element prevailing in society today. With these emerging needs and objectives in mind, Maxfort School, Paschim Vihar organized 8 days of Self-Defense training for all the courageous girls from grades VI to IX, where the training was imparted by Delhi Police persons.
