We reach out to children and adult stakeholders across India, to address gender and sexuality with a special emphasis on child sexual abuse, through education, training, research, advocacy, and tangible support.

Prevention through Personal Safety Education

50% of abusers are persons known to the child or in a position of trust and responsibility. This can be prevented through Personal Safety Education

This 2007 study on Child Abuse by the Ministry of Women and Child Development also found that 53.22% of children interviewed reported having faced some form of sexual abuse. Easy access to the internet has further opened new avenues of exploitation of children.

Child Sexual Abuse can be prevented through Personal Safety Programs
Enfold India has been working towards addressing and preventing child sexual abuse across multiple platforms through age appropriate, value based Personal Safety Education programs that have been extensively researched and refined over 16 years. Children learn to recognize, resist and report sexual abuse to parents and teachers who have been sensitized to be supportive.

Get involved. Recommend Personal Safety education in schools and colleges. Train with Enfold to teach little children Personal Safety.

You can donate and raise funds for Enfold’s Laksha Makkal Surakshe Project for the Personal Safety education of underprivileged children.

Demystifying Sexuality

A course on Human Sexuality and Personal Safety that will provide a scientific perspective on the Development of Human Sexuality, Sexual Diversity, Child and Teen Psychology and Child Sexual Abuse. It also provides insights into the evolution of gender bias, and how it perpetuates or can be countered.

With an understanding of the physiology of the reproductive system and gender psychology, the course is meant to provide clarity on issues related to sexuality and reproduction. It is geared towards helping you take informed decisions with regards to your health, emotional well being, and helping you get more comfortable with your sexuality and personal relationships.

Your interactions with children will also see a positive change and you will be able to have factual, value based and age appropriate conversations with them in a comfortable manner.

Community Education Initiatives

The silence that shrouds Child Sexual Abuse cannot be broken without a responsive community. The children cannot report abuse without being confident of their parent’s and teacher’s trust. The family cannot seek redressal without the appropriate law, a supportive police force and judiciary, and a through medico-legal examination of the targeted child

Measures have been taken to address the issue of Child Sexual Abuse. The Prevention of Child Sexual Offence Act 2013, the various State Child Protection Policies, the inclusion of Personal Safety and Gender Empowerment in text books for Government schools. A number of schools also include Personal Safety Education as part of the curriculum. Enfold has been actively involved in this process.

Much more needs to be done. The ongoing sensitisation and training programs for parents, teachers, police personnel, medical personnel, public prosecutors and other members of the judiciary, and Public Health Nurses, needs your support. You can train to ne a Personal Safety Educator, or arrange sensitization and training sessions for any of these stakeholders along with Enfold.

Testimonials

We find the programme very very useful because it kind of broke a lot of myths. Also, probably helped children clarify doubts they had in their minds. These workshops opened the minds of the teachers and they also realised that it was important for them to discuss it in class if there is an issue, rather than not answer the queries of the children.

Its our responsibility to provide a secure environment for our children and understand the difference between unsafe and safe touch. As parents our role does not end in deciding what they want to study or what they want to do.

Child molestation and sexual abuse is a serious societal malice today because unless we protect our children and give them a life they deserve, we will be destroying our society.

There is a deep concern for child safety and there is a need for people to work on setting up child health and safety standards so that there will be a code by which it will be measured and a code by which they could follow and set in place processes so they reduce any adverse impact it will have on children.
