Under our project, Personal Safety Education Program we address the issue of child sexual abuse: its prevalence, prevention through awareness generation. Accepting the facts and educating adults is the first step to preventing child sexual abuse. We know that prevention is possible, and our project exists to empower adults and children to show that prevention is possible.
The aim is to achieve a long-term impact, by improving training of local professionals, encouraging participation of individuals in prevention and care, providing support and education for children in their communities.
With the help of our “Personal Safety Handbook”- an activity based book designed specially for children between the ages of 10 to 14 years, we conduct workshops in schools and communities. A 40 min classroom session is designed to deliver personal safety knowledge along with fun activities and quiz. We have so far conducted workshops in more than 200 Government and Private schools of West Bengal .
