Every now and then, we hear news reports of children abducted or abused. For each of these tragedies, many more go unreported. Every child has the right to be loved and protected. But who will stand up for their rights?

Facts on child sexual abuse (CSA)

  • Any act of sexual contact between a child and an adult is CSA
  • Can be the result of force, coercion or trickery
  • Happens in all countries to any child, any time, anywhere including Malaysia
  • Goes beyond statistics, as it is often unreported

Preventing CSA is an enormous task. But the first step is easy. Come to the Protect and Save the Children Awareness Talk on child sexual abuse.

Who should attend?

  • Parents
  • Relatives of children
  • Educators
  • Public policy makers

  • Understanding the Sex Offender
  • Causes of CSA
