Sponsor my run: Help stop child abuse

11 November 2010
Posted in: Social issues | 4 Comments

I did the Great Delhi Run of the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon on 21 November 2010 to raise funds for the RAHI Foundation, an NGO that works towards ending child sexual abuse in India. Many thanks to all those who sponsored me to support my campaign against child sexual abuse.

About RAHI’s work

Did you know that more than 53% of children in India are sexually abused? Sadly, most of these children never speak of their trauma and suffer in silence due to the denial of such abuse in our country. Without understanding and help, it is practically impossible for a child to survive sexual abuse without being deeply scarred for life. This support is exactly what RAHI provides, along with other critical services promoting awareness and prevention of child abuse. RAHI’s activities are in the areas of Training, Education, Counselling, Research and Communication. You can visit their website to know more.

How will your contribution help?

  1. Provide counseling to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.
  2. Train parents and teachers on how to protect children from sexual abuse.
  3. Educate 15,000+ young people on incest/child sexual abuse prevention through RAHI’s College Peer Education Programme.

How to contribute

[Contributions are now closed.]

Please support my cause. Donate generously and help protect children from sexual abuse. I will gladly accept whatever amount you can give.
