Sexual abuse of children happens across every socioeconomic status, ethnicity, culture, religion and education. Getting treatment for a victim of child sexual abuse is a complex process because of the lack of trust by the child. When child sexual abuse occurs the victim’s family has difficulty talking about the abuse, which leads to the family pretending the abuse never happened. Once the family ignores the abuse, this tends to leave the child to face their worst fears by themselves. 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 are making a conscious effort to create awareness about the following, and you too can be a part of our efforts. Your donation, big or small will help us raise 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.

About Me
I am Swikritie Dhawal, a student of the Cathedral And John Connon School. As a child, there are a lot of things you look forward to. As a child, I never had a worry in the world. No one ever considers the fact that their child could ever be sexually abused because most of the time there are no signs of it. A child can be abused in many ways, but in my opinion, sexual abuse is the worst. Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) affects children for the rest of their lives, and this is why I have chosen to raise for this issue.
