Self-Defense Training for JBFC Matrons and GirlsJune 8, 2016 9:36 pm
JBFC is one of only five non-profit organizations chosen to participate in a pilot program to bring self-defense training to girls in the Mwanza region of Tanzania. The self defense training is designed to empower girls to identify potential danger, to act with confident independence to get to safety, and if necessary, to know how to physically protect themselves.
A national study on Violence Against Children in 2011 found that nearly one in three Tanzanian girls reported at least one incident of sexual violence before their 18th birthday (UNICEF 2013).
Teddy is looking forward to learning more in self defense training because she thinks it will be useful after she leaves JBFC if she might ever need to protect herself.
