Tulir - Center for the Prevention and Healing of Child Sexual Abuse is a registered non-profit Trust, based in Chennai, committed to working against child sexual abuse (CSA) in India, since August 2004.
Preventing and healing child sexual abuse require equal parts of caring, optimism and pragmatism. We must care deeply for our children, be optimistic about human being's capabilities for change and be pragmatic how to work with children and the larger community to bring about positive transformation. Since caring and optimism already reside within the majority of people Tulir focuses on the pragmatic - how to translate the abstract notions of prevention and healing into a blueprint for action
The five broad areas of activity are Personal Safety Education - a direct prevention initiative with children and which includes online safety, Healing and Intervention, Advocacy, Training, Research and Networking
Tulir believes a society's integrity and worth is not based on the quantum of cases which exist but the proactive steps taken to respond in a timely and appropriate way to ensure that its children may benefit from its caring and foresight, to truly have the right to be safe all the time from sexual abuse.
After all, it takes a community to protect a child.
