In the wake of rising crimes against women in Delhi-NCR, 3Pillar Global today launched a six-month self-defense training program for underprivileged women, Project Shakti, in association with Ekjaa Foundation.
Project Shakti was launched at Maharaja Agrasen High School in Sector 62, Noida. 120 women are slated to participate in the initial phase, which will provide self-defense training to them over the course of six months. Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Jonathan Rivers, Chief Technology Officer of 3Pillar Global, said, “We are proud to associate with Ekjaa Foundation and launch Project Shakti. This novel initiative will help empower women by teaching them how to defend themselves physically in unpleasant situations.”
Addressing the media, Ms. Harsha Mukherjee, Founder of Ekjaa Foundation said, “Self-defence education should be a mandatory curriculum for girls from the secondary section not only to empower women financially but also physically to defend themselves. We would like to spread the wings of Project Shakti across the country, considering the rising crimes against women.”
