With the knowledge of effective strategies in personal protection, the current president of the IAPPA, Oliver Becker, created a security & violence prevention training program for children in 1998 that is still successful today.
With the SecuKids - Child Protection Program, children are protected from all kinds of physical and emotional violence, because they learn how to use their instincts and feelings to recognize dangers at an early stage so that they can act safely at all times.
