In a world of rising crime against women, especially minors, MukkaMaar aims to equip girls with self-defence training (verbal, non-verbal, physical and emotional skills) to avoid, deter, diffuse, resist and escape violence.
MukkaMaar is a non-profit initiative of Ishita Sharma Foundation that provides a 3-year comprehensive self-defence training program to the lesser privileged adolescent girls in a twice-a-week module to ensure it’s a skill that will not escape the minds and bodies long after.
Started at Versova beach, Mumbai, with girls from a nearby slum, MukkaMaar has now partnered with MCGM to deliver the program to all 1100+ Municipal schools across Mumbai. Currently ~2500 girls are being trained in Classes 6, 7 & 8 across 47 schools. MukkaMaar aims to make its training program available in all the 1100+ schools in Mumbai and also expand to other cities.
Team MukkaMaar comprises of professionals drawn from various fields and industries. Professionals from film industry, sports arena, corporates and management consultants, who share their values with MukkaMaar, play active roles in managing and mentoring MukkaMaar ensuring its growth and aspirations.See more
