Creating Safer Communities
  • Crisis: In 2007 after reading a report which stated that more than 50% of children in India face some form of physical and sexual abuse, the founder Praveen contemplated on ways he can contribute to solving the problem. He came across Kidpower USA 'People Safety' training and founded the Indian chapter.
