Summary

The project provides legal, health and psychological support to children and teenagers who have been victims of sexual abuse. Reporting all cases of abuse to the local authorities is of fundamental importance in order to protect abused children and guarantee their rights. Group sessions with health workers, psychologists and a social worker will help the victims regain their own psychological and physical identities, using a cognitive-behaviour therapy.

Challenge

The phenomenon of child sex abuse is becoming a global problem with dramatic consequences. Thousands of children and teenagers, particularly girls from the poorest families, suffer sexual abuse and exploitation. The Brazilian Amazon has long been famous as a sex haven for foreigners: occupied and exploited, it has always been the youngest members of the local population to pay the price. Sadly, most cases are closed without the abuser being brought to justice.

Solution

The project's aim is to provide legal, health and psychological support to children and teenagers from Manaus who have been victims of sexual abuse. Through the help of experts we promote medical care and provide psychological-clinical treatment via group therapy. The protocol used is developed by Brazilian researchers and adapted to local needs.

Long-Term Impact

The expected consequences are the break of the abuse cycle and improved legal protection, also with the contribution provided by working in partnership with the city's network of organizations protecting children. The direct beneficiaries are 60 children and teenagers between 8 and 14 years of age and the families of the victims or accompanying adults in the cases of children living in institutional centres.
