No Bad Touch Project

This project, provides workshops to children, teachers and parents in local schools and colleges regarding the prevention of sexual abuse in children. This project has been running since early 2014 and the workshop has been developed with the help of a local psychologist, Dr Reena Bhansali, Smile Junction with Sambhali interns who were studying psychology at university. A workshop has been created which includes a puppet play, short film and seminar. The aim is to provide 8 workshops per month plus 2 workshops for parents and teachers. This is proving a very successful project, reaching over 3000 children per year, so bringing awareness to children and families throughout Jodhpur. Each workshop is taken by Vimlesh Solanki a Sambhali staff member, who has been leading these workshops from the beginning. This role would be suited to someone who would be open to speak about this topic and also has the confidence to speak infront of an audience.
