UN SDG #3 – Good Health and Well-Being


Solving the issue of violence among humans contributes to good health and well-being. We certainly have enough research that tells us how horrible violence is for children. Just do a google search for adverse childhood experiences and you will find in that list that violence and abuse are major players in negatively affecting the health of children, which then, of course, translates into unhealthy adults.


When the World Health Organization is talking about 1 in 2 children between the ages of 2-17 suffering from violence in the past year, this is a global pandemic.


How to we change this? We invest in prevention.

We teach kids skills for reaching out to others who can help when the adults who should be protecting them are hurting them. And we teach how them how to defend themselves as best they can the moment they feel threatened.


We teach parents and other adults who work with kids that we are watching. We develop communities where violence against children is not tolerated.


We are creating a new petrie dish within which we raise children where the climate for unchecked hidden abuse is thwarted before it can take hold.


Where caring adults are watching and believing.

And where adults are giving the skills they need to educate their children from a more empowered place and without violence.


And where adults are giving the skills they need to educate their children from a more empowered place and without violence.

Children getting the skills they need. Adults taking responsibility for a healthy culture.


This is the goal of Empowerment Self Defense
