1 in 2 children in India is affected by Child Sexual Abuse. Our experiences and research suggest that acquiring the right knowledge and taking a step towards equipping ourselves with the skills to impart personal safety education to children can play a great role in addressing this issue. It is important to create a dialogue on this issue, take action, and change the narrative around child safety by looking at it through a lens of hope and not fear.
Initiated by Arpan, Child Safety Week is a people-led movement to raise awareness and encourage collective action towards addressing the issue of Child Safety. An entire week, starting from 14th November – 20th November, is dedicated to highlighting the importance of this issue through conversations and events for child safety.
Key dates around children and child rights fall in this week:
- 14th November: Children’s Day, India
- 19th November: World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse
- 20th November: International Children’s Day
