I Am My Bodyguard


Our Workshops

Our age-appropriate life skills workshops are designed to empower children, youth and women through building awareness, self-esteem, assertive skills and physical self-defense techniques.

Make An Impact

We want to give children, the youth and women a fighting chance by teaching them valuable personal life skills that will make them more aware of their environment. We also want to equip them with easy to learn tools for self-defense in the event of an attack.

The life skills workshops will show them the importance of trusting their instincts and how to develop critical thinking skills to understand fear, cultivate assertiveness and not hesitate to protect themselves.

During our Train the Trainer course, we teach, and mentor local female and male volunteers interested in becoming future trainers. These courses cover everything from course design to  interpersonal skills. Qualified trainers are then able to deliver our curricula to a larger number of students. Upon completion they will receive a recognized certificate and will be able to teach our programs.

Our train the trainer program is in line with our long-term strategic commitment to offer our program to as many women and children using local trainers. By this approach, we will create employment as well as reduce our cost of relocating trainers around the world.


We work with other local community based or international NGO’s and government organizations to learn from them and share our approach. Whether you are a large or small organization let’s get together and work towards creating societies free from all forms of violence against children and women.
