Programmes & Services

Our yearly plan focuses on core activities derived from the following 5 Fundamental Goals.
  • To promote safe environments for children to live and develop.
  • To equip every child with personal safety skills.
  • To create effective support network mechanisms for children and adults.
  • To provide counselling and therapeutic services.
  • To advocate for policies.
These define our Programmes and Services such as:
  • Educate towards safe and nurturing environments with preventive outreach programmes to increase awareness and response and self protection skills for children.
  • Treatment to heal and develop towards holistic growth.
  • Advocate in the best interests of children.
Goal 1 : To promote safe environments for children to live and develop by increasing awareness of the need for protection from child sexual abuse.

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.
  • For low risk children in healthy families, personal safety teaches parents and children the right to express their opinions on how others touch them.
  • For high risk children who cannot say NO to a more powerful person in their life, personal safety teaches how to use support systems to report what happened and get help for early intervention.
  • For children who have been abused and cannot tell because of fear, personal safety teaches them that what happened was not their fault, thus hoping to mitigate long term effects caused by feelings of guilt and shame.

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.
  • Individual Therapy
  • A more personalised and in-depth approach, play and expressive therapy techniques used include art, role-play, imagery, journal keeping, letter writing, storytelling, games, sand tray and clay.
  • Group Therapy
  • A supportive approach, this method allows children to confront and work through experiences with a group of peers who are facing the same issues. This is powerful in the healing process because a sexually abused child often feels isolated from his/her peers. Sharing their experiences in a group can lessen this loneliness and stigmatisation.
B) Case intervention support through the reporting process and court trials.

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.
