Women and girls with disabilities are at a much higher risk of violence and abuse than their peers. Recently in the news there have been cases of young visually impaired girls being raped and sexually abused in India. <br />
As part of empowering and developing the skills of young visually impaired girls, Sightsavers is piloting an adolescent health programme to enable them to respond to real life situations in positive and responsive ways. As part of this Sightsavers is training visually impaired girls in self-defence. Many of the girls, who come from economically underprivileged backgrounds, have gone on to win medals in the National Blind and Deaf Judo Championships and a few want to go on to teach other girls with disabilities in the arts of self-defence. <br />
