No More Biting or Punching

canFebruary 24th is Anti-Bullying Day in Canada. Organisations like Youth for Christ are using the opportunity to draw attention to the challenges hundreds of thousands of Canadian children face every day. For many kids the cost of bullying is high. For North Vancouver teen Nimrat Mann, it almost cost her life. In Grade 8, a Grade 10 girl began singling Nimrat out, punching her, biting her, calling her names, and pulling her hair. Her journey to health and happiness began when she signed up for a cooking class through Youth for Christ’s Youth Unlimited. After signing up for a variety of Youth Unlimited programmes, Nimrat’s self-confidence and self-esteem soared. Now when she walks the halls of her high school, she keeps an eye out for other students who might need the help that she so desperately sought.
