18th March 2016.
This year Bali Children’s Project are undertaking a new type of workshop to help teach young children of the dangers and signs of abuse.
Thanks to the support from our friends at Three Monkeys, this year we have been able to raise enough funds to support our brand new program in Child Protection workshops.
The Need for Awareness
Amid growing reports of abuse and exploitation of children in Bali, The Bali Children’s Project has launched a new program that will help child recognise and the signs that they may be in danger.
The aim of the program is to help prevent children from danger by equipping them with the knowledge to spot it.
The new element to our 2016 Sex and Health Program has already proved to be a much needed program. Out of all the schools approached, every school signed up to the workshop.
In total, we will be undertaking workshops in 22 different schools, which will impact nearly 1,000 children. The workshops are aimed at younger children than in our Sex, HIV & AIDS workshops – aged from 6-12 years old.
As with our other workshops, the Child Protection workshops have been designed by Opi Sulaeman, who runs our Sex and Health Program. Opi’s incredible dedication to helping tackle issues that are often not talked about has been the only reason these workshops exist.
Once again, she has designed the workshops to be fun and engaging for children, yet addressing a serious issue that could save them from real danger. Bali Children’s Project are so fortunate to have Opi and her team.
With Thanks to Three Monkeys
The sessions are fully funded by kind supporters Three Monkeys. Through their ‘Food for Thought’ campaign, which donates the process of certain meals to Bali Children’s Project. You can read more about their generosity here.
