My name is Keya Parikh. I am 16 years old and study at the Cathedral and John Connon School. I was completely shocked when I learnt that 53% of Indian children experience sexual abuse before they turn 18 years old and according to the NCRB 2018, 109 children were sexually abused everyday in India. This is why I teamed up with HEAL which works to eliminate Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) through the tool of education. The aim is to enable children and adult caregivers to understand, recognize, learn preventive methods and respond sensitively to Child Sexual Abuse. I invite you to help me help HEAL help eradicate CSA through learning and hence help ensure a safe future for every child.
