Spreading Awareness on Child Sexual Abuse: ’Tis the Need of the Hour
The project aims at mitigating the issue of child sexual abuse by undertaking awareness meetings/gatherings with youth and school children in the work areas of AWAG in rural and urban areas of Gujarat.
However, with the schools being closed due to Covid-19 lockdown the meetings were conducted with community children.
Thus, awareness building on the issue of Child Sexual Abuse was addressed through meetings whereby children were enlightened on the issue of ‘Safe Touch and Unsafe Touch’ through the story of ‘Komal’ developed by CHILDLINE.
A total of nine such meetings that covered 96 children from AWAG's work area in Ahmedabad Gujarat, were undertaken in small groups of 10-12 participants with strict adherence to government norms of social distancing, sanitation and wearing of face masks related to Covid.
The details of the meetings undertaken are outlined below:
Malek Saban dargah -10 children
Morarji Chowk (Batch 1) = 10 children
Morarji Chowk (Batch 2) = 10 children
Gujarat Housing Board Bapunagar (Batch 1) = 11 children
Gujarat Housing Board Bapunagar (Batch 2) = 9 children
