What can be done to stop child rape? Education and Career expert Dr. Karan Gupta teaches from the best schools to slums to the streets. He talks about how to keep kids in school and how education is the key to stop child rape in India. Instead of punishment, we need a solution now and for the long-term. Children are being empowered to defend themselves through a unique combination of education with self-defense classes. If you are empowered, you will not be compelled to show your power.
