WHAT WE DOSahil has been working for the last 20 years on child protection especially against child sexual abuse. Our priority areas are awareness raising for prevention of child abuse. This includes capacity building of primary and secondary schools teachers, organizations, community members, parents, police and lawyers. Our services include free legal aid and free counseling. Along with Sahil legal officers we have the services available of 100 referral lawyers for legal support across the country. Free legal and counseling services are available at Sahil head office and four regional offices Abbotabad, Jaffarabd, Lahore, Sukkur. In 2011 Sahil has started to reach out to communities build their capacity on child protection, and establish child protection networks at the village level. These child protection networks are linked up with the local and district administration, INGO’s, NGO’s, private sector and other stakeholders to enable them to refer cases to the required service. Sahil’s advocacy works involve research and publication work. This include the publishing of quarterly magazine on relevant topics and publication of an annual research of CSA newspaper reports. Other Sahil activity include internship and volunteer program and resource center. Sahil also develops communication materials for supporting its interventions.
