Fazlani Aishabai and Haji Abdul Latif Charitable Trust organized a Workshop on Awareness on Child Sexual Abuse for our teachers on 16th October, 2017.
This workshop was conducted by Ms. Deepali Kharat from the organisation “ARPAN”. The session consisted of information, attitude and skills to identify visible detectors of sexual abuse, how to handle disclosure and to provide first level support to children who are reporting cases or undergoing counselling. Information was also given on legalities involved and the POSCO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences ) Act.
For better understanding , the trainer shared many cases that they have dealt with at “ARPAN”. They also shared their helpline number and distributed handbooks on Child Sexual Abuse to all our teachers. The workshop was very interactive and many queries of teachers were patiently and effectively answered by the trainer. Overall, the entire session was very impactful and enriching. This knowledge will help the teachers spread awareness amongst their students and also children in their families and Friends.
