What is the WELC Safety Awards?

Women, Elderly & Children Safety Awards (WELC Safety Awards) founded in December 2022, occurs thrice a year – January, May & September, in which any Institutions or Organizations can participate for free, and get recognitions for their efforts towards supporting UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and making the world a safer place for women, elderly, and children.

Our Goals

  • To Encourage Academic Campuses to Organize Campus Safety Awareness Programmes.
  • To instill Moral Education in Students that will prepare them to live a Healthy and Peaceful Life.
  • To Prepare them to tackle a danger, by carrying safety tools like flashlights, pepper sprays, etc, and configure their mobile phones with Emergency Contact numbers and having installed Safety Software Apps on their phones, as a Precaution.

Awareness is Better than Advice

As we live in the world of insecurities, it is everyone’s necessity to be brave and courageous to raise their voice against violence, and it’s in our hands to create a crime-free safe world. 

All kinds of violence can be prevented, if we properly educate and create safety awareness among the younger generation, and make use of the appropriate safety tools. 

  • Every 11 minutes, a women, or girl is being killed.
  • 1 in 3 women of about 736 million have been subjected to physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both at least once in their life.
  • 1 in 4 adolescent girls aged 15–19 have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from the trusted people.
  • Women under 30 years are mostly under risk of being subjected to online harassment.
  • Only less than 40% of the women who experience violence seek help from their trusted people.
