The community should promise me that each girl would become brave and each boy would become responsible, thereby working towards community coalition, said Kiran Bedi stressing on the need to join the self-defense course.
The launch saw the presence of about 1000 community members from Karala and Bawana community. About eight schools from the nearby community participated in the launch event, whereby 50 students from each school performed in the assembly and parade, holding the school banners and flags.
Bedi took the salute and inspected all the contingents participating in the event. As a symbol of freedom, tri-colored balloons were released by young girls, filling the sky with a mark of independence. Navjyoti also recognized the contribution of key persons from the Karala community, such as first person to receive Police President Award, first female Superintendent, newly-wed daughter-in law by disseminating certificates to them.
Post the launch of the event, a workshop on self-defense and legal literacy is conducted in the Karala and Bawana centre of Navjyoti, wherein young girls and women from the North-West Delhi have enrolled themselves for the same.
The idea was that every girl and every woman should have access to self defense training, thereby safeguarding themselves at the time of need to further their safety and protection.
