Thanks to Kidpower supporters like YOU, thousands of women throughout the world no longer feel threatened on their job!

“I love my job as a caregiver. But, I was ready to quit because I felt threatened all the time. On the bus, in the apartments, and sometimes even with the families in their homes. I was always looking over my shoulder. I didn’t know how to protect myself if something happened. That all changed after I learned and practiced the safety skills in a Kidpower staff workshop. I feel like I got my job and my life back!”
– Sarah, caregiver for the elderly
