As part of it’s committment to combat CSA from all directions (literally), we are organizing a special interactive session with the support group for members of the  “Swikriti”with whom we have a long-standing association.
All details are provided below and all are welcome to attend and provide input or just listen.

Interactive session between Elaan and Swikriti on Saturday April 12th from 5:00 pm onwards at the Elaan office ; IB 150 Salt Lake Sector III, Calcutta 700 105
SUB : Sexuality and Sexual Abuse – A convenient taboo ?
As part of it’s campaign to involve all existing facets of society in the “Combat Child Sexual Abuse” awareness and intervention programme, Elaan invites members of Swikriti and of it’s own organization to an interactive session on the above.
The objective is to bring forward some of the common problems faced by organizations and activists in context with encouraging solidarity and awareness on the issues of sexual abuse and sexuality, which although different subjects, share a common tag of social ostracization and stigma between them.
Through this discussion we hope to establish common grounds for solution-based plans which may be used for future awareness events.
The total duration of the interactive session would be 90 minutes, inclusive of tea.

We would be appreciative if you could revert with the names and contact details of your friends and associates who will be attending by Wednesday April 9th. All queries may be directed to 98741 35992.

There are no entry fees for this session. All are welcome.

The Blog

Elaan is an NGO dealing with Child Sexual Abuse issues.

Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) and Incest are painful and unprovoked acts of violation. In India, where subjects relating to sex and personal safety are not discussed, the issue is shrouded in secrecy as the prevalence of abusive acts increases. The objective of this blog is to encourage reading, debate and constructive awareness implementation methods via the 'blogosphere.'
