Life Skills based Personal Safety Programme for Students
Dr Sangeeta Saksena and Dr Shaibya Saldanha started Enfold Trust in 2001, realizing that parents and teachers were grappling to deliver information on gender sensitization, responsible sexuality and personal safety in a comfortable, non-judgmental manner. They created a unique, scientific and value based program on Life Skills, Gender Empowerment, Sexuality and Personal safety for children as young as pre-school children, to almost adult college students.
Over the years Enfold has developed a psychologically sound and effective ways of equipping children with survival techniques in a rapidly changing and globalizing society. We have designed and a 5/6 Value Based curriculum in Life Skills, Gender Empowerment and Personal Safety for school students. It couples humane values with modern scientific knowledge to give the child a firm foundation to explore his / her life. Students develop self-esteem, responsibility and empathy. They use Life Skills to learn to live in harmony with themselves and the society.
The world is presented to the students, not as a dangerous place to be scared of, but as a place where they can claim a space of their own to live a life of happiness and contentment. Older students learn about responsible sexuality.
Build the capacity of the students to Recognise, Resist and Report perpetrators of sexual crimes.
