It takes every Indian to end Child Sexual Abuse.
One in two children in India has been subjected to some form of sexual abuse. Sadly, 50% of abusers are persons known to the child or someone whom the child trusts.
Support Girl Child Foundation India gives awareness to children and empowers them to protect themselves from sexual abuse and exploitation. We raise awareness in the communities and general public to address values, attitudes and behaviours which condone sexual abuse and exploitation of children. We strengthen the implementation of effective laws, policies and systems that protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation.
Join hands with Support Girl Child Foundation India to put an end to child sexual abuse.
It’s a shocking reality that India has the world’s largest number of sexually abused children. Unfortunately, most of these children who were sexually abused did not report this to anyone.
Despite the fact that one in every two children in India is subjected to some form of sexual abuse, the issue hasn’t got the attention it deserves. Our work with over 26 lakh children across India compels us to provide a safe environment for children to grow and encourage them to speak out against sexual abuse, where needed.
The need is vast and urgent. When children are exposed to any form of violence, it hampers their ability to realise their full potential for the benefit of their families, communities and countries. Child sexual abuse has harmful effects and can lead to behavioural, emotional, physical and interpersonal problems. It takes you. It takes me. It takes every Indian to end child sexual abuse.
