Purpose: The project aims to increase awareness about the phenomenon of hypersexualization and sexual assault among (12- to 17-year-old) girls and boys, as well as among those in their social setting (families and family service workers), who often feel powerless to deal with this phenomenon. First, the organization aims to make young people more aware through workshops/presentations. Then, it will target a number of young people, family members and family service workers who will, in their own right, become agents of change in their respective environments, and provide support for young people in terms of learning about their own free will and acquiring self-esteem.
Comments: Multi-year project of 36 months.
