Feb. 8-14 is National Awareness Week for Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

Tacloban City (February 7) — Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno called on the local chief executives of the local government units to head and support the observance of the National Awareness Week for the Prevention pf Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation. This is pursuant to Procalmation No. 731, series of 1996.

The annual observance seeks to help make communities a safe place for children. This year, the observance will focus on the Preventive Safety Lessons.

The PSL is a violence prevention program that “empowers children to take part in their own protection by giving information and skills within their own culture and religion.” The children are taught of three important things to protect them from abuses: learning to say no, run, and tell.

  1. The Let Go…Let Peace Come In Foundation is a newly formed nonprofit with a mission to help heal and support adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse worldwide. We are actively seeking adult survivors who would be willing to post a childhood photo and caption, their story, or their creative expressions to our website http://www.letgoletpeacecomein.org. By uniting survivors from across the globe we can help provide a stronger and more powerful voice to those survivors who have not yet found the courage to speak out. Together we can; together we should; together we NEED to stand up and be counted. Please visit our site for more details on how you can send us your submissions.
