Child Abuse

Break The Silence – As many as 53 per cent, or one in every two children, are victims of child sexual abuse, which often happens at the hands of a trusted person, within the home. Parents must be vigilant and sensitive to their children’s signals; and a robust and specific law against child sexual abuse is needed.


Gender Sensatization

Gender sensitizing “is about changing behavior and instilling empathy into the views that we hold about our own and the other gender.” It helps people in “examining their personal attitudes and beliefs and questioning the ‘realities’ they thought they know.”

There is a whole group of people whose very existence is treated as a crime. They are those with alternative sexualities—lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBT). We invited experts and some people from these communities to tell us how inspite of everything they continue to live life on their own terms and why we must all learn to love and respect people with diverse sexualities.
