Education for Dalit Children (the “Untouchables”)

Self-defence courses for girls – karate against sexual assault

In order to combat sexual violence (which is deplorably widespread in India, particularly against women from lower castes), we offer regular and free karate courses to our female students as well as to girls from surrounding villages. They are extremely popular!

In 2015 and again in 2017, Austrian Karate World Champion and SONNE-testimonial Alisa Buchinger visited our schools in India and held several training sessions with the girls, who adored her!

Our Indian project partners

Since 2012 SONNE-International has been cooperating closely with the Indian non-profit organisation Buddha Educational Foundation Society, which has been actively involved with the school project since 1999 and which is therefore a reliable and professional partner. As far as finances are concerned, the organisation relies entirely on local donations, all its members work on a voluntary basis.
