Women Self Defence Training Program is a unique initiative of Kerala Police under its Community Policing Project. This project aims at empowering women through comprehensive awareness and practical training program. The vulnerability of women and young girls is a major factor contributing to the instances of crime against women.
This special programme for women's self defense has become extremely popular among the women folk of Kerala. No agency ever in our country ventured to impart WSDT hands- on training in such a big scale. When completed this would be a record.
