Along with studies, girls should be taught self-defense methods in schools and colleges.
Lucknow: Jackson Group, in collaboration with Let’s Give Hope Foundation, today took a step towards women empowerment by organizing self-defense training for more than 500 girl students of Subhash Chandra Bose Government Girls Post Graduate College at LDA Stadium, Aliganj. Under the Saksham programme, the objective of the program was to curb serious problems like molestation and harassment of women and to increase the self-confidence of girls and enable them to deal with such threats on their own.
