Though this online campaign, we hope to equip a wide audience with the knowledge and tools to understand what Child Sexual Abuse is, how to identify it and how to report it.
There has been a surge of horrific acts of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) being reported in Sri Lanka and the lockdowns and stay home have contributed to the increase in violence and abuse
that is taking place behind closed doors.
We strongly feel that it is important to raise our voices and create a community driven campaign against Child Sexual Abuse, as we believe community involvement is key in ensuring that these
heinous acts are brought to light, perpetrators held accountable and a sense of zero tolerance toward abuse becomes a communal thinking pattern.
The main goal of the first campaign is: “Learning about Child Sexual Abuse in order to foster an informed decision towards Zero Tolerance”
Creating an awareness and understanding in the community about CSA (Impact of CSA (mental health, development , future))
Creating an action pledge video chain where people pledge to #ProtectEveryChild share and tag as many of their contacts as possible
Creating a movement online, where people are engaged in sharing information and speaking up and against Child Sexual Abuse (videos, speaking out, sharing pledge)
Follow up the movement efficiently and regularly so people stay engaged and interested and have visible ways to contribute
Take the pledge and save a life
