What is Child Sexual Abuse?
Child Sexual Abuse, CSA is any sexual contact between a child and another person with or without force and people who prefer sexual activity with a child are known as ‘pedophiles’. It is important to remember that such people are completely responsible for the abuse. The effects are disheartening and numerous such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, propensity to further victimization in adulthood, and physical injury to the child.
A shocking fact says, that one in three girls in the world is sexually abused before reaching the age of eighteen, and one in four before the age of fourteen? In the case of boys, one in six is sexually abused before the age of sixteen. They can be homosexual or even heterosexual. And it is disheartening to hear from the victims.

The court also advised the government to seek the help of NGOs in tackling the problem of Child Sexual Abuse. Here is a blog helping people to understand about CSA and how to tackle it.
