Girlpower: Be Confident!

Available on Amazon and on Kindle!

Teen girls and women often have to deal with the crippling effects of peer pressure, bullying, harassment, violence, and abuse, which can have a severe effect on their health, social, and academic skill development. This can have a severe effect on their health and their social and academic skill development.

Girlpower: Be Confident!” is the journey of four friends as they learn to tackle everyday problems and barriers, at school, work, public spaces, or even at home. Read about Meira, Ritu, Saina, and Taru – as they learn to reach their highest physical, intellectual, and social potential, using their “GIRLPOWER”!

The entertaining comic illustrations and engaging social stories address a wide range of personal safety issues with skills for teens and adults in simple, clear, and memorable language.

We aim to equip teenage girls and women with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experiences to keep themselves emotionally and physically safe; help forge new patterns in social interaction; promote healthy life styles and choices; and overcome other barriers in reaching their highest social, physical, and intellectual potential by building their boundary-setting, self-advocacy, and positive peer interaction skills in a way that is effective, not fear-based, positive, and fun.

Daily we read horrifying news about abuse and violence against children especially girls. It is the aim of our school to teach our children to be confident leaders. We came across Girlpower comic book and safety trainings as a powerful method to ensure safety of the children. Ms. Sobha Rani, trainer from Kidpower has come to our school and trained our girl children in Girlpower Safety skills. The children also received a nice Girlpower comic book from which they can read interesting social stories and practise the skills on their own. Now I can tell with assurance that the girls are equipped with the necessary skills to protect themselves and face the world courageously.

Felt nice to learn the skills. The skills are useful to become confident and safe, in one’s life.

I like the most – how voice helps us to be safe and how to protect our feelings even.

After the classes, I learned different powers like walk-away power, mouth-closed power, hands-down power etc.
