Child Wise delivers ‘Personal Safety’ training to teachers, to help them educate children about personal safety, body autonomy, safe and unsafe touch and encourage them to express their feelings, particularly if they feel unsafe. Children with increased awareness of body ownership are more assertive in expressing their feelings are less vulnerable to abuse. Every $70 raised educates a teacher and provides a manual with activities, templates and resources to teach children personal safety. For every teacher Child Wise trains, 22 students will benefit and be less vulnerable to abuse.
