OUR ORGANISATIONAL VALUES
Our organizational values are based on full respect for the principles of equality, inclusion, and individual diversity in all communities.
We adhere to the principles of Rights of the Child, which is at the centre of our concerns, irrespective of cast, creed, religion and gender.
We recognize the sensitive nature and vulnerability of children and our approach is with care, understanding and respect.
Handling children who have been abused and sexually exploited must be approached sensitively. The best method to interact with them is to allow them to tell their story. We become the audience that listens to the pain, hurt and emotional changes they go through.
Survivors of abuse and sexual exploitation often are reluctant to socialize with the public. The trauma they have endured is too sensitive for the public to understand. We try to understand and help them overcome their social phobia and assist them in getting back to society and rebuilding their lives.
Help is provided through our awareness programs for communities, officials and children themselves. We provide counselling, financial assistance for survivors and contribute for the revival of their lives.
PEaCE focuses to redress child abuse and facilitate the full development of children within our society and beyond. PEaCE observes all laws and regulations governing NGO activity.
