This project's proposal is to warn and prepare 500 colombian children of low economic means, between ages 4-12, against sexual abuse, and to form their parents to face such problematic situations. This will be done through reflective workshops and story books that educate children and parents alike, against this type of abuse.

Challenge

According to UNICEF, one of every three children will suffer some sort of abuse before reaching puberty or turning 12. In Latin America and the Carribean a child is abused every 15 seconds. Each year 2.000.000 victims are added. In more than 90% of cases, the abuser will be male, and in more than 80% it will be someone close to the child. Child sexual abuse is not a matter of poverty, social status or religious belief. Any child is at risk of being abused.

Solution

Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in children between 4-12 years old, and parent formation to face such problematic situations. Through our workshops and courses, we strengthen the character in children, who will learn to say "NO", we strengthen their self-esteem, and children will be able to identify the intimate and visible parts of their own bodies (public and private). Alongside, we form parents to identify alert signals.

Long-Term Impact

- Children knowledgeable and aware of the care and privacy of their own bodies. - Children who have effective tools to help prevent abuse against them. - Parents knowledgable and aware of the fact that their children can be under abuse. - Parents with the tools to identify alert signals and act upon it. - Overall impact: reduction of sexual abuse situations against 500 children in the areas we are engaged in.
