Help Pee Wee Karate founder end violence towards girls and women

Action Breaks Silence helps to educate and empower women and teenage girls around the world through personal safety training and physical self-defence.

Action Breaks Silence is a not-for-profit company founded by Debi Steven in 2013 to bring her specialist personal safety and self-defence workshops to underprivileged women and teenage girls in India. Her aim is ultimately to expand into Africa, Europe and the Middle East. On a trip to Delhi and Kerala in India, Sensei Debi Steven became aware of how great an influence learning personal safety and self-defence skills would have on the lives of girls and women in India, who face major dangers.

Debi who is one of the world's leading personal safety and self-defence instructors and runs adult and children's karate classes in London (Pee-Wee Karate), has set up the non-profit Action Breaks Silence to offer her self defence workshops free to underprivileged women and girls throughout India.


Debi is hoping to generate enough funding from individuals and organisations to enable herself and her team to travel to India at least four times a year to run self defence workshops, and set up instructors' training workshops so that local women, once qualified, can share there skills to members of their communities and ultimately across India. To date Action Breaks Silence has trained over 10,000 women and girls in India, where to date their focus has lied. In the future they want to spread their work to Africa and other areas of South Asia by the end of 2015.

Debi and her team are currently in Mumbai, where they aim to teach another 3,000 women and children with the help of their trainers from their Kalari team and trainers from Lucknow, as well as two volunteers from the UK.

If you would like to hear more about the amazing work that Debi and her team do, take a look at her website www.actionbreakssilence.org and if you would like to make a donation to this very worthwhile cause you can visit her fundraising page www.actionbreakssilence.org/donate. Action Breaks Silence are now a registered charity, after starting life as a non-profit company.
