Review for Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International (known as Kidpower), Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Praveen Vempadapu and I am development professional. I attended Kidpower training in 2008 on how to teach children to be confident and safe. I was very inspired on how we can build a community where every child can be safe. The training gives the children very useful and important tools like how to be aware, setting boundaries, how to handle strangers etc. It is also very fun and entertaining for children. We started kidpower India and now we provide kidpower trainings in India. After the first training one of the participant called us to inform on how she used kidpower skills. She was in a train and a drunk person was troubling her. She immediately used her voice power and shouted 'No - Please leave from here'. The person got startled and left. We knew this service is needed in India and definitely in all the places where there are children because every child needs to feel safe.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Irene and other staff commitment and support.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly, organized and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be used for institutional building - provide free trainings and creating media to reach more number of children
