Our Journey

Heading Underline Satefy Club 250x39

Safety Club Sahas Foundation is a Non-profit organization that trains children between the age group of 2 to 8 on basic safety skills.

Statistics show that over 60,000 children in India die from accidents every year and many more are injured and disabled for life due to accidents that can be prevented. 1 in 2 children (53% of boys and girls) in India face some form of abuse while growing up.

Children are our future

Help them

There is no formal training that a child goes through in India to be aware of a good touch or a bad touch, and how to react when someone makes you uncomfortable. While parents are protective of their children and will give their lives to keep their children safe, they do not have a handy tool or book to review and explain the safety concepts to young children with ease and without inhibition.

Children are our future

Help them

Keeping the above facts in mind, the founders – Chandana Raju and Sumana Rao wanted to empower children with safety skills so that children can be safe in every situation. As a 1st step to the solution, they authored a children’s book called “Safety Club”. This child friendly book contains attractive illustrations, and small and witty poems to engage children. It can be used as a tool by parents and teachers to educate children on critical safety skills.

Safety Skills Book for Children 2 to 7 years

A Safety Guide

Available on

Flipkart

The book covers topics that include safety at home, on the road, safety when the kids are on their own and finally makes the children aware of their responsibility to keep the planet safe. The book also contains important numbers to remember, phone and internet safety and finally activities at the end that can help them internalize safety concepts. The illustrations are so intuitive that a young child between the age of 2-7 will be able to see the visuals and grasp the concepts. It was also done keeping in mind children who cannot read yet due to their age or literacy, so they can understand the concepts through the illustrations even if they cannot read.

We researched several safety programs in US and India to come up with an effective safety skills program that can be implemented with the young children of India. We started Sahas Foundation, a nonprofit organization with the goal of empowering every child across India with safety skills. One of the main goals of the foundation was to educate underprivileged children who have limited knowledge and awareness of the safety concepts.
