On April 26, 2010, SAVE India launched two workshops for the wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers of the police constables who courageously protected lives during the 26/11 attacks. “Our Stories, Our Future” was a week-long empowerment workshop using “Storytelling” as a tool to begin to articulate personal encounters and to listen to the lived experiences of those impacted by violent extremism. Through the accompanying workshop “Swimming into the Future,” SAVE taught an important skill and built strong bonds of friendship between the participants. Swimming is used for confidence building and for getting comfortable with one’s own body.
