Empowering people to prevent child sexual abuse.
How You Can Help The Cause:
Now that you’re a member TELL YOUR FRIENDS!! Invite everyone you know and give them the opportunity to show their support in ending child sexual abuse. Feature Darkness to Light on your profile; make the issue visible. Child sexual abuse will only go away when we start to take proactive steps as adults to learn how to prevent it!
BE ACTIVE. Check back for updates, Post related stories, Create discussions and Learn about the epidemic.
Sadly, it’s been proven that 20% of our children are sexually abused by the age of 18. Epidemic in proportion, child sexual abuse is a violation that directly and indirectly affects EVERY PERSON ON THIS PLANET. The effects of sexual abuse on the victim and society are deep and nasty; ranging from drug addiction, to teen pregnancy, to sexual violence and even increased rates of suicide. Not to mention that in the US alone, tax payers spend $35 BILLION annually on the long-term costs of sexual abuse!
The Light at the End of the Tunnel:
Darkness to Light has the world’s only evidenced based child sexual abuse prevention program, Stewards of Children! Stewards was even honored as the 2007 National Crime Prevention Program of the Year. With over 1,800 trained Steward’s Educators (we call them Facilitators) in 47 states and 10 countries D2L has already protected hundreds of thousands of kids from sexual violation!
