CSA is amongst the most heinous of crimes against children and an extreme violation of child rights. Sexual abuse puts the child in perpetual trauma and shock affecting her/his physical, mental, psychological as well as social well-being and placing her/his overall growth and development in jeopardy. Keeping this in mind KSCF conducted a pilot study in Delhi -- National Capital Territory, to obtain a scientific understanding of the psychosocial dimensions of such a crime, and what impact it leaves on the child survivor of abuse and on the children in conflict with law and their families. The study also attempted to map the effectiveness of the available support systems. This was an exploratory, pilot study designed to map key knowledge gaps for further research and to find lasting solutions for ending this crime against children.
