Active citizenship Program (Self-Defense)
Child sexual abuse, also called child molestation, is a form of child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation. Forms of child sexual abuse include engaging in sexual activities with a child (whether by asking or pressuring, or by other means). Child sexual abuse can occur in a variety of settings, including home, school, or work in places where child labor is common. The Aurat Foundation, Lahore planned an activity with the collaboration of International Federation Medical Student Society Association (IFMSA) on self-defense and how the children can retaliate from such activities. They designed a program named “On your Own” to create awareness among youth and children regarding the sexual abuse. We engaged the young and energetic students from different Universities, like the university of the Punjab and Kinnaird college women university. A detailed session and activities were conducted with them. In future, those students will plan one day activity in different schools, orphanage homes, special schools etc. It will increase the awareness and confidence among the children and they will be better able to face the situation.
