Background and Intent
Cases of sexual abuse against children have increased over the years with devastating effects on children. Children feel significant distress and display a wide range of psychological symptoms, both short- and long-term. They feel powerless, ashamed, and distrustful of others. Recognising the urgent need to mobilise action against sexual abuse of children and thereby to Make India Safe Again for Children, Nobel Peace Laureate Shri Kailash Satyarthi, the Satyarthi Movement and the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation is currently undertaking Bharat Yatra.

The Bharat Yatra (India March) is a clarion call to Make India Safe for Children by initiating a mass movement calling upon each citizen to take urgent action to break the unacceptable silence and aloofness that surrounds the sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking of children every day. Flagged from southernmost tip of the country, Kanyakumari on September 11, 2017, the Yatra will cover 11,000 kms across 22 states with the aim to sensitize and engage more than one crore people to pledge against the menace of violence against children.

PURPOSE BEHIND THE LESSON
Acknowledging that there is great paucity of information, knowledge and understanding regarding child protection in India, there is an urgent need for children to become empowered, so that they can protect themselves and other children. Rooted in the idea that India needs a radical, social revolution so it can transform into a child-friendly country where every child is free, safe, educated and healthy, the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation has developed a thirty minutes module on child sexual abuse to be delivered to children across the country by their respective school teachers. The module is based on the primary tenets of child protection with a focus on sexual abuse and its prevention.

The Module has been developed for following three categories of classes:
Classes I-V (Children between 6 to 10 years of age)
Classes VI-VIII (Children between 11 to 13 years of age)
Classes IX – XII (Children between 14 to 18 years of age)

The Module focuses on basic skills children should know in order to protect them from abuse. It also includes some key elements of the principal law in the country to address child sexual abuse – Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
