Summary

PEaCE will train 100 students from 10 different at-risk schools to be change makers with the knowledge of how to protect themselves and their peers from sexual abuse and exploitation. They will each go through one 2-day workshop and one 1-day workshop as an essential part of this training. After completing the training, these students will each train a further 20 students from their schools within a year, spreading the message.

Challenge

Sri Lanka is very vulnerable to child sex tourism, trafficking and online sexual exploitation of children. Statistics state that there are over 40,000 child prostitutes, amongst a population of just 21 Million. Many innocent children have unwittingly become victims; due to lack of awareness, security at home, urgent need for money for their families,etc. This training aims to prevent such crimes by training 100 at-risk Sri Lankan children from underprivileged regions and child abuse hot-spots.

Solution

Since 1991, PEaCE has been working to prevent all forms of child abuse. Through this project, by PEaCE, each child will understand what the dangers are, know when they are sexually abused/exploited, and will be trained to report/take measures against it, and make a large impact on raising awareness in the area. The project also targets the roots of the problem, the vulnerability of the children themselves, and works to drastically reduce their chances of being victimized.

Long-Term Impact

Though only 100 children who are being trained as change-makers, there is potential for each of these children to train hundreds of other children to protect themselves in the future. There is hope that all the students from the 10 different at-risk schools will slowly become aware and safe from sexual abuse of children, through these focused workshops. The impact will spread through to their families and communities and make these areas a safer and more secure place for the children.
