Bullying is a major issue children face at school. It leads to many problems in children like depression, anxiety, disinterest in studies etc., which stick with them even in adulthood. Need a help for your child? Then Buddy Project is at your fingertips. The Buddy Project aims at tackling various problems faced by the children.

The idea of Buddy Project came from Archana Ravi, first runner-up, Miss Super Globe International 2018, who herself was a victim of bullying at school from her teachers and schoolmates. They have a toll-free number, in which children can contact if they are facing bullying from anyone. They will also conduct programmes in every school and mark them as anti-bullying zones. The project has currently 70 volunteers now.

 

The Buddy Project was launched at Sacred Heart School, Kochi, last week. The function was attended by Indian footballer Sandesh Jhingan, celebrities like Vijay Yesudas, Arjun Ashokan, Aparna Balamurali, Niranjana Anoop, Rajisha Vijayan and  Thasveer Muhammed.
