Challenge

Sexual abuse occurs to about 10,000 children in Colombia, becoming one of the main causes that affect the development of children, at the same time that it enforces violent actions and poverty. Preventing sexual violence against children is a challenge and responsibility of the entire society. Therefore it is imperative the involvement of parents and teachers in the protection of the children rights, as well as the families' commitment to caring parenting.

Solution

Corpolatin supports the child sexual abuse prevention through workshops where children participate and engage in conversations about this issue and how to prevent this from happening. Experiential workshops are held with children, teachers and parents to recognize the risk and protective factors regarding child sexual abuse. We seek to engage schools in the prevention, creating mechanisms of detection and support for victims, providing educational materials to achieve the goal.

Long-Term Impact

Through our actions we expect that the educational community (children, teachers, parents, school directors) of each public school we work with, becomes a protective community against sexual abuse, ensuring the proper development of children and a full experience of their rights. The work done at the educational institutions replicates in the communities and individuals that have contact with the project participants, which helps accomplishing immediate prevention of sexual abuse.
