Enable every girl to defend herself, fearlessly


MukkaMaar strives to end the vicious cycle of crime against girls through preventive intervention by putting power directly in the hands of the one who needs it. In order to solve this complex problem, MukkaMaar uses long-term self-defence training as a means to not only teach the physical part of self-defence but to also inculcate a system of values wherein the girls gain agency over their bodies.
