In India, Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) is a reality that touches at least 40%-50% of children. With only four organizations working on the issue in a focused manner, there is a need to make people aware about this malaise in society, bring the issue out in the open and talk about it.
Arpan works towards creating a safe and supportive environment for children and adult survivors of CSA through its programs: a) Personal Safety Education (PSE) empowers children through workshops & skills in order to prevent the risk of sexual abuse. b) Awareness through basic skill building sessions with diverse stakeholders for protecting children. c) Healing services program helps restore a sense of self awareness, self-worth, stabilization, process the trauma, and reintegrate with society.
Since inception, Arpan has reached out to 1 lakh individuals directly. The PSE program has reached out to nearly 26,000 individuals. Arpan has empowered over 3,800 police officials and over 15,000 stakeholders like parents, teachers, and health professionals through awareness sessions. Arpan has helped 52 girls in institutions with long term therapy and 148 children, adult survivors, and their family members.
