November 19 marked World Day for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, so the DIF System in Puerto Vallarta performed different activities with children and adults, to provide them with the tools that help them prevent child sexual abuse.
As part of these activities, DIF placed green bows on all agency employees, to create greater awareness about sexual abuse in children and adolescents, in addition to providing them with training on this topic, to know indicators, risk factors and how to address children and their family in this situation.
Also, through the Directorate of Child Protection (DPI), different educational establishments are used to offer talks to children on the subject.
During this month, four kindergartens will be visited and through the talk ‘The Caresses and the Bad Secrets’, students are taught to become aware of the right that each person has on their body, to express their feelings before the caresses, differences between good and bad secrets.
Another of the activities that are carried out is the reading of the story ‘Estela Grita Muy Fuerte’ with primary school children, and at the Vizcaya University, the talk ‘Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse’ is given to psychology students.
On November 25, the DIF System will host the conference ‘Prevention of Child Sexual Violence’, which will be held in the lounge of the Fiesta Americana hotel, at 9:30 am, aimed at parents and adults in general, to raise awareness and take care of girls, boys and adolescents.
