HEAL (Help Eradicate Abuse Through Learning) is a Mumbai-based NGO working in the area of child sexual abuse since 2008. It is estimated that nearly 50% of children in India face abuse. Yet, we see HEAL through their awareness and sensitisation workshops on child sexual abuse and body safety, which aim to equip adults to recognise and deal with child sexual abuse, as well as help the survivors the best they can; and help the children integrate a sense of body safety and autonomy. The vision thus upheld is to consciously create safe spaces like schools, communities, and homes, that can help in avoiding the horrors that a sexually abusive experience can bring about for children.
We, the children of The Cathedral and John Cannon School are joining HEAL in their fight against child sexual abuse. Your donation, big or small will help us raise the funds for HEAL. These funds will be used to enhance HEAL's reach to various schools and communities, and thus create an ecosystem which is safer for children.
Hi, I am Navya Agarwal, studying in the 10th grade in The Cathedral & John Connon School and I want to raise funds to help survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. CSA is an epidemic, one that most people would like to think happens in some other neighbourhood, to some other family, to some other child. While it may seem easier to live in denial, child abuse happens everywhere and knows no barriers — not race, income or religion. It happens in your neighbourhood. It's happened to someone you know.
