Arpan, a non-govermental organisation (NGO) working towards the cause of preventing child sexual abuse launched the Personal Safety Education (PSE) kit for Class I-VI, on Thursday, at YB Chavan Centre, Mumbai.
Arpan’s flagship programme, the PSE Programme, aims at teaching children personal safety skills in schools, institutions and communities so that they can identify unsafe situations and seek help. It also empowers teachers, parents and adults with the appropriate knowledge, attitude and skills to prevent and deal with child sexual abuse and create a safe environment for children.
The objective of the PSE training kit is to increase help-seeking behaviour amongst children, and to make adults aware of their role in keeping children safe. The kit includes tools and instructional guides.
Pooja Taparia, Founder and Chief Executive of Arpan said, “This is a historical moment for Arpan to share our experiences of working with 100 schools and organisations which we have consolidated in these eight training manuals for schools.”
