Crisis: 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.
Programs: Arpan works towards creating a safe and supportive environment for children and adult survivors of CSA through its programs: a) Personal Safety Education (PSE) - which empowers children through workshops & skills in order to prevent the risk of sexual abuse. b) Mental Health Services - which help restore a sense of self-awareness & stabilization, process the trauma and reintegrate with society. c) Awareness - through basic skill building sessions with diverse stakeholders for protecting children.
Outreach: Arpan has reached out to 120,000+ individuals directly through the PSE program i.e. 65,000+ children from 120 schools and 50,000+ parents and teachers. So far, they have provided long term psychotherapy to 380+ children and adults, empowered 3,800+ police officials and 15,000+ stakeholders like parents, teachers, and health professionals through awareness sessions.
