Fighting Abuse, Institutionalising Change

February 2020: Children are sensitive souls and, by nature, they remain unsure of how and what they can communicate even with their parents and teachers. The senior children of Satya Bharti School in Bari Khas village, Shahjahanpur noticed that many children are not able to differentiate between ‘good touch’ and ‘bad touch.’ In addition, cases of road accidents and child kidnappings have instilled a sense of fear among the children.

The young change-makers got together to strategise on the tools and means that could be used to sensitize the young girls and boys in the village on ‘child safety’. With the help of teachers, the students devised innovative platforms, including assembly sessions, group discussions and awareness campaigns in the community to spread the message far and wide.

In the sessions, the students introduced child helpline numbers, shared ways to save oneself in vulnerable situations, and familiarised traffic rules to the children, parents and members of the community. They also sensitised parents on the need to keep communication channels open with their children.
