‘Akancha Srivastava Foundation’ partnered with Haryana Police to spread awareness about #Dial112- Emergency Response Number and cyber safety.

We were invited by Bhiwani Police, Haryana to spread awareness about their powerful safety initiatives on ground especially for girls & children safety. Together we conducted back to back cyber safety awareness workshops as young adults/ children or even adults are addicted to internet today.

We addressed 2500+ children on day 1 at the beautiful Halwasiya Vidya Vihar school. Extremely encouraging participation, enthusiasm and the open mindedness of children gives us tremendous hope. At the Foundation we have always maintained that children today are very bright and all they need is our handholding. We need to speak to them in all honesty and become good examples of what we preach.

Thankful to Vimal Acharya Sir, the Principal, all teachers but especially children who   showered us with so much love. Our Founder Ms Akancha Srivastava is a huge favorite with children. Her genuine affection & ability to convey the trickiest message in simplest form has always worked wonders with adults & children alike. As you will see in this video as well.

Having Bhiwani Police women police officers along with us in this drive has further raised the respect in our hearts for law enforcement. We got insights into how hard they work in the region, listen to victims with compassion & with a stern hand when dealing with a criminal. Grateful to such committed, dedicated police personnel who are in service of the nation 24×7.

About  #Dial112 emergency response number -a fantastic set up especially for girls who can download this app and fill their basic information which allows police to track their location.

All e-rickshaws in Bhiwani have been given a unique ID and their driver’s details registered with the Police. In case of any such situation where a girl is feeling unsafe during travel, she simply has to Dial 112 and trigger emergency response. Patrol cars reach the victim within minutes with this ‘trip management service’. They even double check to ensure that the caller has reached their destination safely. Additionally Bhiwani Police has deployed women Police personnel in plain clothes at ‘hot spots’ & ‘hot routes’.

These spots cover entrances of schools & colleges, shopping malls, bus stations, train stations, public parks, food courts, popular travel routes. These personnel immediately intervene at any sign of harassment.

Our Foundation was glad to be invited to be a part of this initiative where we educated thousands of young students across school & colleges about cyber safety and Bhiwani Police measures. Enriching experience for us to witness this change within interiors of the country. We hope to continue this police- public knowledge partnership for long term social change as we have been doing for last many years.

We look forward to visiting Bhiwani again to conduct more such impactful trainings.

Heartfelt thanks to Bhiwani Police, Haryana Police for giving us this opportunity.

Stay Aware, Stay Safe

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!
