PARTNERING WITH COMMUNITIES TO PREVENT CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

The safety of our children is entrenched in our laws and within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Moreover, it is the responsibility of all adults to protect all children and ensure that their lives are free from sexual abuse and exploitation. However, the reality is that child sexual abuse (CSA) continues to be a blight in our society.

These are the basic facts:
  • Child sexual abuse is any act of sexual contact between a child and an adult.
  • Child sexual abuse happens in all countries to any child, anytime and anywhere.
  • Child sexual abuse goes beyond statistics because the abuse is often unreported.
The prevention of CSA is a huge task. But, the first step is easy: Protect and Save The Children offers an awareness talk that focuses on the dynamics of CSA. By understanding the mechanics of CSA, everyone can identify how s/he can become part of the solution in eradicating CSA. The talk is open to all and covers the definition, types and characteristics of CSA, understanding the sex offender, the importance of teaching children personal safety, why children fear to disclose sexual abuse and how to handle disclosure.

An integrated approach to CSA prevention involving all members of the community is the most effective way to keep our children safe from child sexual abuse and exploitation
