Crisis: In India, one in two children is affected by child sexual abuse. With very few 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: 1) Personal Safety Education (PSE): Empowers children through a life skill education module in order to prevent the risk of sexual abuse and to seek support when such an incident has occurred. 2) Counselling: 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.
Outcome: Arpan has reached out to over 237,000 children adolescents and adults directly through their services of prevention and intervention, and over 480,000 indirectly through training and capacity building of various stakeholders.
