Work and Achievements
A study on Child Abuse by the Ministry of Women and Child Development found that 53% of 12447 children interviewed had been exposed to some form of sexual abuse. Another estimate shows that children with disabilities, and further those with intellectual disabilities, are at 3.14 times greater risk of sexual abuse.
We believe our children have the capacity to recognize and report sexual abuse, and can heal emotionally, if helped in a professional manner. Enfold’s 360 approach has evolved over 16 years to prevent and address this abuse.
Through education, training, research, advocacy and providing tangible support, we have reached over 1,67,630 children, 31,847 parents, teachers, and support staff in 549 schools across 50 cities India.
Suvidha Project: A one of its kind, interactive, easy to use teaching learning tool for children with intellectual developmental delay, as well as visual or auditory impairments. Since 2016, over 600 parents, teachers and trainers in 21 schools across India, have learnt how to talk to children with disabilities about personal safety, sexuality etiquette and reproductive care.
Rehabilitation and Reintegration services: Reintegration and rehabilitation of over 60 children and families impacted by sexual violence. Registered support persons counsel and hand hold them through the medico-legal process as per the POCSO Act and support their psychosocial rehabilitation. We train all stakeholders to be empathetic and manage sexual abuse while adhering to POCSO Act and policy guidelines, as well as child sensitive protocols for interviewing, collecting and recording evidence. Providing these services cost us 12-14 lakhs per annum.
