TESTIMONIALS

 “Had Arpan not walked in, I do not think BCG would be so conscious and aware of what it means to keep children safe. Our reach has not just been the children; but all our staff and parents, which would probably mean almost 25,000 families. We are proud that Arpan walked in and we sustained our relationship with Arpan.”

I see myself talking to children who are shy, introvert and taking interest in their behaviour and changes in moods.

The staff from Arpan has educated children in the area of Child Sexual Abuse from grade 1 to 4 by giving them information on private body part and providing them Personal Safety Education. Each child was individually attended to and the concerns of each child were addressed effectively. This Personal Safety Education provided by Arpan staff has not only built up the confidence of the children but also given them strategies to keep them safe and secure. The sessions with parents and teachers have led to positive changes in shaping their perspectives towards CSA. We are extremely grateful towards Arpan for the program.

We have realised how important it is to tell our children about using the right terminologies for their private body parts.

Excellent work! Hope to see Arpan covering all schools in Mumbai. We are happy for the fact that our children will be learning personal safety. Also thankful to the school for providing great opportunity to children through Arpan’s programme of PSE. We are glad that CSA information is not only restricted to children and teachers but even parents get that information.

I am really very happy that the children are lucky to learn PSE. I wish I had sessions like these, & then I wouldn’t have gone through such situations in my life.

“Thank you for providing the much required, appropriate information for the students in grades 5 and 6. After your PSE implementation, one of the parents shared with us that her child has started communicating on issues like safe/unsafe touch which earlier she would choose to keep it to herself. We also want our children from grades 7-10 to benefit from your program. Please train these children as well.”

We are very glad to state that our association with Arpan in the academic year 2011-12 has been a truly enriching experience. It has been a learning endeavour to the management, staff, students and parents.

After PSE happened my husband and I are comfortable talking to our son about private body parts and there is more open communication within the family.

I congratulate Arpan for the kind of work being done with the children. As parents, we might not be able to talk to children about the information on private body parts the way it was taught in school.
Parent

The work that Arpan has done for students is priceless, and their work is commendable. It is very important for all our students, and we would like to thank Arpan for it. Because of this organisation, the confidence and self-esteem of our children have increased so that they can keep themselves safe. This program has increased their decision-making capabilities.

I really like the work that the Arpan team has done because I feel like there are some things in our society that people don’t talk about. But the Arpan team works for that cause, and that’s why it’s a good initiative.
Teacher

No one had spoken to our children on this topic, neither did we have a discussion regarding it. The awareness session conducted by Arpan has been very helpful for our children. Talking about private body parts and related topics made us anxious, and we also felt shy to talk about it. But Arpan trainers spoke about it openly. The homework sheets that children were asked to complete had opened communication channels between our children and us and it have helped us a lot.

“The Personal Safety Education Programme has to be a part of the school curriculum and the system here. Two years back, when Arpan started the programme in our school, it was one year programme, not a one-off session. All of the teachers were made aware. Personal Safety Education lessons were conducted in every single class first, and then individual sessions were conducted with children. Because it was intensive, we were able to detect 7 cases of CSA in our school. I was shocked beyond imagination that this was happening in my school. Because of the curriculum and the content of the PSE programme, we were able to take the necessary actions to stop the ongoing abuse.”
