Empowerment through Self-defense
IPER started empowerment through self-defense training in association with Geosatis Trust, which is very essential and became popular among our children. It is important especially for girl children because they instinctively feel the need to learn self-defense; their parents are encouraging too. We are proud to say that in the training sessions that Geosatis Trust has set up at IPER, there are more girls than boys. It also serves the purpose to reach out to girls and educate them about their rights and privileges and it them confidence and strength.
Many of the children now in their youth have won accolade in National and International competitions.
As these young women begin to get an exposure to the world of sports, many new doors have opened for them. Apart from the obvious option to become sportspersons they have the opportunities in getting jobs as coach, trainer, referees, umpires, or even may get scholarships for higher education in courses like sports technology and management.
Dance Movement Therapy -DMT IPER in collaboration with Kolkata Sanved has undertaken an empowerment programme on DMT. The Programme believes that all individuals whether they from marginalized or mainstream population, should live with dignity and self-respect. This basic sense of empowerment and integrity can be achieved through Dance Movement Therapy.
