This Christmas, Schbang for Good has joined forces with Sakshi - a rights-based NGO to tackle the increasing problem of child sexual abuse. The communication
for the change vertical of Sakshi, ‘SBOX’, along with Schabang’s impact communications wing ‘Schbang for Good’, launched an action-oriented digital campaign for The Rakshin Project, a youth-led movement working to end Child Sexual Abuse in India.

The campaign was launched on the eve of Christmas and intends to draw attention to the ‘Shadow Pandemic’ of Child Sexual Abuse and invite the adult community to participate in the solution. 

Children are often portrayed as small bundles of magic during the festive season. They are under constant pressure by society to be “NICE” and due to their
trusting nature they are unable to differentiate between the realities of what falls under naughty and nice. 

The campaign film centres this uncomfortable truth that 90% of abusers are within trusted circles without frills and ends with an offer of a free training session
every Sunday at 3:00 PM, which aims at equipping the participants to become alert around children. The campaign aims at redefining what NAUGHTY and NICE
stands for and it’s training session also provides tools to build safe spaces, teach children about personal boundaries and how to speak up about any and all
experiences without hesitation or fear.

Riya Parekh, Group Creative Manager, Schbang for Good states “From a young age I've debated the idea of "naughty or nice" because their definitions aren't
well defined. Through the campaign, we've tried depicting a repercussion of this, a life-altering repercussion for millions of children.”

While WHO promotes seven strategies to end violence against children, The Rakshin Project by Sakshi, a unique program in a pro-bono partnership with the
Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, aims to build the capacity of 40 Lakh Youth (18 to 22 yrs) pan-India, enabling them as preventers of gender-based violence and
child sexual abuse.

Natashja Rathore, Founder and CEO of SBOX by Sakshi states “As we celebrate the resilience with which we have addressed the challenges of this year, The
Rakshin Project’s on-ground initiatives coupled with SBOX’s communication initiatives, continue to work towards ensuring homes actually become ‘safe’.”
