Challenge

Studies conducted by RAHI amongst women college students in India have shown that incest/child sexual abuse is prevalent and impacts their lives. Due to silence on this issue, there is little information, training or services. Young women want access to information and healing resources and feel the need to be engaged in social action for prevention and intervention. Our project, aimed at women college students of Delhi, addresses these needs and is the only project of its kind in the country.

Solution

Theatre, films, exhibitions, lectures, communication material production and distribution, campus campaigns, developing training manuals, courses, disclosure workshops, team-building, peer leader training, self-help groups, one-on-one counseling.

Long-Term Impact

Students empowered to work with peers as educators and helpers; counseling services for victims; early intervention so victims break cycle of abuse and make healthy life choices; students engaged in social action against incest/child sexual abuse.
