    New campaign raises awareness about child sexual abuse

    By Tamara Elliott


    CALGARY- A campaign has been launched to address the sexual abuse of children in Calgary’s Indo-Canadian community.

    The Canadian Sikh Network joined forces with Calgary Communities Against Sexual Abuse, to raise awareness about the issue.

    They’re also researching best practices specific to the community, and one of their first initiatives will be a poster campaign in Punjabi.

    “The program focuses on prevention and awareness, taking a message to a new community,” explains Human Services Minister Manmeet Bhullar. “In addition to that, providing some support services through a gateway, through a language that people understand.”

    The province is supporting the program with a $100,000 grant.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
