The objective of the self defense workshop is to teach basic steps to protect themselves in case of emergencies, and further highlight the need to end violence against women. The workshop is conducted by Master Saiful from Kickstart Academy. This is one of Avon’s philanthropic efforts in raising awareness for domestic violence.
Together these three women presented different stories of their personal lives but shared one common goal – to raise their children with their best effort.
