Anti-OSAEC Awareness Campaign to Protect Children with Special Needs

In one online awareness campaign, a teacher for children with special needs shared that she received a report from a neighbor that a child with special needs is being abused in her own home. Initially, the teacher did not take action because she didn’t know what to do. The principal of their school then invited all the teachers to attend the online training being conducted by our partner, Honor 1000 Movement.

After the session, the teacher shared that she now feels empowered to act on the said report. She gathered more information and found out that the child’s mother would leave her daughter to a neighbor while she is out for work. This is when the abuse takes place.

Unfortunately, children with special needs can be more prone to exploitation because they cannot speak up or defend themselves. This is the concern raised by another SPED (special education) teacher, and suggested that parents of children with special needs also undergo the training to help raise awareness and for them to be better equipped in protecting their children.

Both teachers have expressed their commitment and are coordinating the schedule and logistic concerns to make the training happen.
