Defend our Children aims to improve Quality of Life, Health and Safety, Overall Experience and Mental Stability of Children throughout their educational journey. This includes, but is not limited to, giving away safe space desks, case study work with schools, addressing safety in the event of imminent dangers such as school shootings, improving school procedures, providing shelter for unexpected inclement weather, and discouraging bullying and sexual abuse.
The Safe Space Desk
The next generation of the school desk is here! The Safe Space Desk provides instant access to safety the moment the student senses danger. To protect the student, the desk has an interior door that slides open, then the student enters and closes the door behind them. This desk has hidden ballistic properties that will protect the children from dangerous events. The desk will be available in multiple sizes and given to educational campuses for free from Defend our Children Charity.
Our Charitable Causes
Giving Away Safe Space Desks To Schools
Safe Space Desks are the next generation of school desks. This desk is the first safety desk of it's kind that provides instant access to safety during the event of imminent danger. The desks are a safe space for children if they face things such as school shootings, bullying, sexual assault, school violence, and tornado producing weather. These desks have unlimited opportunity for further development and technology integration. Available 2021. Schools sign up today to be considered for free desks.
Active and Ongoing Case Study Work
We have plans to work directly with school administration, safety agencies and first responders to systematically break down the actions taken in the event of school alarms such as fire alarms, weather alarms and active shooter alarms. We will team up with local and national agencies to run scenarios and continuously collect data.
Enhancing Current School Procedures
Upon completion of case studies, we will begin to propose solutions, test and improve procedures. Procedures vary by region and may be school specific. We are driven to improve the educational environment for the best and provide instant access to safety for children in the classroom. We plan to publish this information for national use.
Discouraging School Violence and Bullying
The educational environment is not a place to fear or to be bullied. Bullying has long term major risk factors for poor physical and mental health and reduced adaptation to adult roles including forming lasting relationships, integrating into work and economic independence. By providing a safe space for the student to find safety, then the student will have a predetermined safe zone to seek refuge from an unsafe event. We believe feeling safe and being secure in school truly leads to a better education experience.
Deterring Sexual Harassment
From depression to high blood pressure, victims of sexual harassment often experience emotional and physical symptoms for years to come and commonly lead to heart problems. Our case studies and procedural improvement work helps deter these events from occurring in the educational environment. The Safe Space Desk will allow students a safe space in classrooms to seek safety in during their moment of crisis.
