Arpan (NGO from Mumbai) joins hands with Abhimanyu

If you have the belief to choose your road, If you have the courage to stay on it,
If you have the conviction to surmount the rough stretches, If you do.... you will find that the road begins to follow you

read's the email signature of Pooja Taparia, Founder - CEO of Arpan, and seems like the road has truely began to follow. Arpan is a registered organization based in Mumbai with a mission to Prevent the occurrence of Child Sexual Abuse and heal those who have been affected by it.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that after partnering with Tulhir and Enfold, Abhimanyu has now a new partner in Arpan. Arpan since its inception in 2003, has been working towards their goal by undertaking lots of activities including
  • Spreading Awareness amongst various stakeholders of children; parents, teachers, NGO Professionals and staff to provide them with prevention and intervention skills.
  • Teaching Personal Safety skills to children in schools so that they can protect themselves from sexual abuse
  • Healing child victims and adult survivors through counseling and therapy so that they are able to heal and live beyond the trauma of their abuse with the dignity they have a right to
  • Building practitioner capability to deal with Child Sexual Abuse cases to facilitate better healing of victims and survivors

Here's a nice video by Arpan to bring home their point.

Many Thanks to Arpan for partnering with us and offering support.
