Tulir in Tamil means the first tender leaves of a plant. "There were several ngos working in the area of child rights but only few social workers knew how to handle sexual violence against children. Trafficking was easier to deal with since it had a socio-economic pattern. But CSA is a problem with the entire society," says Vidya. In 90 per cent of CSA cases, the offenders are known to and close to the child, which is why addressing the problem is a major challenge.

The basic objective of Tulir is to work towards a climate where every child feels safe. They focus on raising awareness in public places—from schools to malls through poster expositions to printing personal safety workbooks. Tulir’s emphasis is on conducting workshops in schools aimed at empowering children. My Personal Safety Workbook developed by Tulir is a resource that introduces the concepts of body integrity and personal safety to primary school kids so that they can look after themselves and report CSA. It can also be used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
