Talk on Child Sexual Abuse
SIBC in assocaiton with DPGA, Panvel organised a talk on “Child Sexual Abuse” by noted social activist and national award winning author, Pinki Virani for the teachers and parents on 14th September, 2013. As a prevalent evil of society, it is appropriate that we raise awareness of the consequences of this heinous crime by educating adults – and through them, the children – about simple steps to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse.
The session was attended by more than 200 parents and teachers. Ms. Virani spoke about the impact of sexual abuse on children and how parents must be proactive in creating an open environment at home where children can speak about such issues in a conducive manner. The talk was appreciated by all present.
