CSA is a form of child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation. Forms of child sexual abuse include engaging in sexual activities with a child (whether by asking or pressuring, or by other means), indecent exposure (of the genitals, female nipples, etc.), child grooming, or using a child to produce child pornography. The sexual abuse of children is a fundamental violation of their rights. It is a universal and complex problem.
We aim to protect children by educating them & their teachers/parents on how to recognize and prevent child sexual abuse through preparedness sessions 1.
