Dear Sagar Media Inc,
I owe you a big thank you!
Every time you sign a petition on Change.org India, you empower ordinary citizens like me.
My name is Insia Dariwala and I am a survivor of child sexual abuse.
10 years. That’s how old I was when it first happened. Men who I had dearly trusted violated me.
Over the years, I met many more survivors. Including my husband.
That’s when it hit me hard: men too suffer child sexual abuse and NOBODY talks about it. Male child sexual abuse is a reality that many in India choose to ignore.
I had to do something.
So, I started a petition on Change.org India asking the government to conduct an in-depth study on the prevalence and impact of male child sexual abuse in India.
The response I received blew my mind. Over 1.2 Lakh people signed and shared my petition. My story was covered widely by the media.
Sagar Media Inc, because of your support, the Women and Child Development Ministry promised a first-of-its-kind study on male survivors of child sexual abuse.
That’s not all – the Ministry has urged states and Union Territories to include male children in their victim compensation schemes and funds.
All this happened because of my petition on Change.org India and your consistent support!
I want to make sure that Change.org India can continue to empower people like me, for which your support is crucial.
Thank you once again,
