Kidpower India was established with the aim of creating a safer community in Andhra Pradesh for kids by training them to prevent bullying, molestation, assault, and abduction. This year, Kidpower launched two books for adults teaching them how to keep their children safe from violence and abuse. They also focus on education for the girl child, children with special needs, and school dropouts. The organisation is working with 20 schools in the area and providing scholarships to 200 poor female children.
Some of their activities in 2012-13 were as follows:
Safety Training Workshops: The organisation creates hands-on, short, upbeat, effective, and relevant workshops to teach children about situations through role play. They are tailored for the needs of six to fourteen year olds.
Kidpower Comic Books: The organisation attempts to reach out to a wider audience of parents and children through comic books written by world renowned child safety trainer, Irene van der Zande.
Kidpower Education Support: Their Girl Child project provides education scholarships to female children from poor families so they complete the 10th standard. Kidpower also provides uniforms, books, bags, and notebooks to the children.
