07/14/2015 - Teen Club Girls Begin Seminar Equipping Them with Skills to Confront Abuse


A new empowerment seminar, “Self Confidence and Self Defense: Techniques to Combat Verbal, Emotional and Physical Abuse,” was launched recently for girls at the Teen Club in Beersheva.
The first of this five-session seminar began with the girls learning to overcome their fears and gain self confidence to effectively confront many types of abuse. The girls mastered simple techniques and gestures which equipped them to now defend themselves in the face of aggression. The teen girls are taking the seminar very seriously, given the real dangers that exist in the neighborhoods in which they live. Negba views the seminar as a critical one for the girls; but it sincerely hopes the girls will not need to utilize their new skills.

Funding for this and other Negba empowerment seminars for girls and their mothers from at-risk families was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Negba is grateful to the Federation for its support.
