A World Free of Child Sexual Abuse
  • Crisis: In India, one in two children is affected by Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). There is, however, a strong culture of silence around the issue. Arpan is one of the very few organizations in India working on this serious and highly prevalent, though unacknowledged issue.
  • Programs: Arpan provides CSA prevention and intervention services to children and adults, through their programs: 1) PSE: Empowers children through a life skill education module to prevent the risk of sexual abuse and to seek support when needed. They also work with children who indulge in sexual misbehavior so that there is no re-offense. 2) Counseling: Helps victims restore a sense of self-awareness & stabilization, process the trauma, and reintegrate in society. 3) Training & Advocacy: Through basic skill building sessions with diverse stakeholders for protecting children. 4) Online Learning: E-books for adults and children >5 years of age and an online course for 8-10 year old children on prevention of CSA.
  • Outcome: So far, 217,133 children, adolescents and adults have been directly reached through services of prevention and intervention under PSE, and 997,403+ indirectly through training and capacity building of various stakeholders. 6,473+ children have received therapeutic services through a team of skilled counselors.
