Summary

ASI no jugamos, that's not how we play, is a project that seeks to break the barriers of silence and empower children and youth in Malinalco, in rural Mexico, to talk about child sexual abuse. We are helping children and caregivers to develop the necessary skills to prevent and respond to this difficult reality.

Challenge

In Mexico one in every four girls and one in every six boys, has suffered sexual abuse. In Malinalco, a small town in rural Mexico, one out of every 3 teenagers admits that they live or have lived through sexual abuse of some kind at least once in their lives. It is clear that the right to a life free of violence for children and teenagers is seldomly enjoyed.

Solution

We will implement prevention workshops for 200 children and teenagers; create a network of trained local people who will be spokespersons for the issue and will be able to detect and channel cases of abuse; generate and publish communication material at a local level and share tools and lessons learned with other organizations and in other communities to make an even greater impact.

Long-Term Impact

With this project, Imaginalco is seeking to generate tools and learnings that can be replicated in other communities in the country, in order to protect thousands of girls and boys in Mexico.
