Masoom

Every time we read about a child who has been abused we have an urge to act and over time this intention fizzles away, until the next gory act recurs. WHO in 2002 estimated that 73 million boys and 150 million girls under the age of 18 had experienced various forms of sexual violence. Every 5th Child in India thought to face critical forms of Child Abuse. 40% of India’s children are susceptible to threats (being homeless, trafficking, crime etc.). In 95% of cases of child abuse, the perpetrator is known to the child. The stakeholders who play a role in preventing abuse are children, parents, teachers, police & judiciary and lay citizens. Masoom looks at various means of eliminating child sexual abuse. This is intended through Educated 25,000 rural children on CSA Conduct Workshops for 200 teachers on CSA Initiate “Leher” a campaign where 1 Minute video on CSA would be released every week for a year. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr - '' This world will suffer, not much for the evil done by the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good ones '' Let us take action, however small it may be and put an end to this once and for all.
