General Women Safety tips:

  1. Don’t allow technology to make you unaware of your surroundings. As everyone with headphones, a smartphone and an MP3 player knows – the minute you’re plugged in, the world barely exists anymore! You stare at your phone, zoned out and not knowing what is going on around you.
  2. Share your class/activities schedule with parents and a network of close friends. Make sure they have all the numbers they need to get in contact with you.
  3. Get to know your campus and find out a well-lit route back to your hostel or place of residence
  4. If you are feeling threatened for some reason, talk with people you trust such as friends, family, teachers and security staff. Let them know what is happening and talk about ways they might be able to help.
  5. Always include emergency numbers in your mobile phone’s contact list for easy access.
