“When we heard Arpan’s presentation on their work in helping prevent and reduce the occurrence of Child Sexual Abuse, we couldn’t help but applaud the efforts that are being put in by Arpan and its team. Arpan functions on a child-centered model.

What moved us is the fact that the organisation is not aiming at scalability. It is going right to the root of the end beneficiaries which are children, but at the same time, they also recognise that they need to address and handle cases of Adult survivors of child sexual abuse so that there are fewer cases of revictimization.

We were also pleased to note that Arpan is following a model, which is very systematic. They are doing things in a manner that establishes a level of Independence.

CSA is an issue that should move and stir each one of us. Anyone who sees or engages should understand the criticality of this issue.”
