A team of six students from Madras School of Social Work (MSSW), Chennai, are working on an one month project titled ‘Aran’ with the motto ‘Your safety is your right’ focusing on child physical and sexual abuse among middle school girl students in corporation schools. The project involved research among pre-adolescent girl students attending corporation schools in Thousand Lights area in the city. Based on the research findings where children showed insufficient knowledge on child abuse and child helpline details, the team launched a series of awareness campaigns in the Thousand Lights-Greams Road region. An awareness programme was recently conducted which saw D Sivalingam, Asst Professor of Psychiatry, Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children as the Chief Guest and A Sylvia Daisy, Asst Professor of Social Work, Madras Christian College. They spoke on physical and sexual abuse of girl students in day-to-day life and also delivered the ways in which students can protect themselves. An animated documentary on child sexual abuse was screened and prizes were distributed to all the children who attended the event.
