“The programme is very nice and and beautiful….I like every part of this seminar. But one thing is lot nice that you tell the meaning of sexual assault because in seminar lot of girls were villagers and they cannot share the topic. So aapne unhe ek ummid dekhai jiski wajah se wo ab zindagi mein kabhi galtiya na kar saken or apni maa papa ka naam banaye rakhe….

I like this seminar…It is lot helpful for us…Because this is nice for girls life. I like your power point presentation. I think girls will now speak freely in their house on this subject and improve her dashing power. I like your team and I would like to participate in your team. Thanks for the guidance”

“My self Mrs. Suchitra Badgujar...my daughter is a volunteer of ur NGO SSROH ! She experienced a lot good things by giving the seminar... even I personally attended this seminar and it was really very nice ! Now a days this is very important issue - sexual abuse and assault. Girls as well as women should get the knowledge of this and they should be aware and careful about it. I felt nice when I saw in seminar how the volunteers interact with girls nicely and by the time, even audience speak out and even they share their experiences... so this is very great thing. My suggestion is the seminar u arranged, this should not be only for girls, u should arrange the same topic seminar for parents also ... teen must talk about this topic, but also with the parents...because many times parents only can handle the situation, regarding this kind of problems.”

“I’m Kalyani Badgujar volunteer of national NGO SSROH. I’m a NCC cadet. 1st time I didn't know anything about this NGO then one of my friend told me about this and then I visited our website and then I got all the information about SSROH. It has many projects like Samridhi , Jagriti , Swabhiman, etc. and then I like the concept - what this NGO is doing for society. As I’m a girl, I know the facts how a girl suffers from problems - teasing and all, so I started working for Project Swabhiman. In this project every single fact and reality, every single girl should know about and they should be aware and careful of it so that no one will dare to even think negative about girls and women. I feel very proud to be a part of the SSROH. I’m sure I’ll work hard for the society through this NGO.”
