An animated film which shows how an empowered child reacted to CSA. He knew what's happening is wrong and hence ran away without any second thoughts, he knew the vocablury to communicate what happened, he knew he would be believed by his parents. This empowerment is essential to stop CSA. Children need to know that they themselves are their first protectors and they should respond to abusive situations with all the confidence and strength they can muster.
There has been a lot of discussion recently around the topic of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) in the context of the rising incidents of CSA. One thing that is clear in all discussions is that child awareness is the topmost requirement to stop CSA. There are many resources on internet which aim to generate awareness on this issue.

Satyamev Jayate, a show by Aamir Khan, takes up the issue of CSA in a very good way.

A really informative show.

Many people have tried to answer such questions. Lets search for these answers in some of the wonderful videos presented below.
This short animation film tells us to come forward and gift our eyes. Its simple!
A short clip which used to come on Doordarshan when I was a kid. Short and very sweet. Raises a hope and shows us how our respect and love for a child (working under/around us) can provide a good future and happy life to these children.
This interesting clip raises a very intricate question - "Is poverty just the cause of child labour and not its result? How can we stop this spiral?"

She innocently asks - "Doctor sir, Do you have any medicine for not feeling hungry...?" In another heartbreaking scene, the girl is questioning, probably to God "Dont I deserve even the kind of attention this dog gets here...?"
