About Us Programmes and Services
Programmes & Services
Our yearly plan focuses on core activities derived from the following 5 Fundamental Goals.
Programme Description : CSA Prevention Training
Training and consultation on the prevention of CSA to professionals and community organisations help people to understand the dynamics of CSA, notice signs, how to handle disclosures and who to report to. With awareness comes the need to be involved in implementing CSA prevention programmes and pilot projects, to adopt the child protection policy, or to respond effectively to the impact of trauma, helping them assess in a holistic manner the mental, emotional, physiological and community impact of CSA.
Goal 2 : To equip every child with personal safety skills.
Programme Description : Personal Safety Programme for Children
This programme helps build children's self-esteem so that they will use the information and skills taught to them to protect themselves from all forms of abuse including bullying. Personal safety also equips adults with their responsibility to protect children. Personal safety teaches appropriate touching and respectful relationships by confronting the fact of abuse, as well as teaching positive touching and feelings. Personal safety teaches children their rights to feel safe all the time by giving them assertive skills to escape potentially dangerous situations and to keep seeking help from their support systems.
Goal 3 : To create effective support network mechanisms for children and adults to deal with reporting cases of child sexual abuse.
Programme Description : Networking and Collaboration
Every community and partner organisation already has unique strengths and resources that can be used to prevent and respond effectively to CSA. Our goal is to ensure that those who require help receive the sufficient support they need. Complementing our counselling and therapy services, we work towards creating a community support network for a safe and supportive environment. Thus, we work hand-in-hand with relevant authorities and organisations, schools, community leaders and the media to create a comprehensive support mechanism within the community.
While we support every community and partner organisation's right to fundamental material resources, we also see their relationships within themselves as one of the most fundamental resources for social change. We support communities and partner organisations in designing actions for prevention, responding to abuse, and accountability that make the best use of their capacity to create safer communities that will support the survivors, non-offending and young sex offenders.
Goal 4 : To provide counselling and therapeutic services to survivors and their families to ensure they get the support they need to heal and reach their potential.
Programme Description : Support and Services
A) Support through the healing process with therapy or counselling.
Our support includes providing information through to accompanying them to the police stations and hospitals in the reporting process. When needed, we also provide court support by coordinating with the local social welfare services to prepare children for court and assist in arrangement of a watching brief.
Goal 5 : To advocate for policies which adhere to the fundamental principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Child Act 2001.
Programme Description : Policy Advocating
The systems need to be child centred and develop compassionate responses to the impact of trauma and adopt pro-active outreach and education plans that include community involvement in children's welfare. We are committed to transforming public systems to increase their ability to identify, capacity to respond to, and willingness to prevent CSA and promote individual, family and community health.
