Panaji: A Goa-based NGO has developed a module on life skill education for school children, aiming to protect them from sexual abuse.
    
The NGO - 'Udant' has started holding lectures in various schools across Bardez taluka, and soon they will cover Tiswadi and Salcette talukas, which are considered as tourism hotbeds of the state.
    
"We teach students a simple solution if they encounter an attempt of sexual assault. Shout, Yell, Run and Tell," said Anita Pereira, president, Udant, a NGO which has developed and mentored this module.
    
We ask children, within the age group of 10 to twelve years, to 'shout' at a person who is trying to grope him or her, 'yell' at him, 'run' from the place and 'tell' the parents or teachers about the incident, she said.
