India against Child abuse
Two out of every three children in India are physically abused. Out of 69% children physically abused, 54.68% were boys. Over 50% children were being subjected to one or the other form of physical abuse. Out of those children physically abused in family situations, 88.6% were physically abused by parents.
It should be a joint effort by the parents, society, and the government to safeguard the children against all forms of abuse and neglect. A multidisciplinary approach is required to provide early intervention, educate children and parents against such forms of neglect and abuse.
This Child Awareness program initiated by Vijay Social Welfare Society aims to make children aware of such dangerous situations. We hope to educate them about saving themselves.
This will help in lowering the number of cases and making India a safer place for children.
There was session conducted on Nov 08,2022 for children in Bheel colony to make them understand the types of Child abuse and how to protect themselves from this.
They were also told about Good and Bad touch and Child helpline no. 1098
