With the current revelation about the extent and secrecy of sexual abuse at independent schools, we see the need for a new approach to protecting children within their schools.
Schools are meant to help children grow so they can thrive in life. Instead, pedophiles thrive at boarding schools and children's lives are ruined. Secrecy has perpetuated this culture.
Recent media coverage has empowered victims to speak out instead of suffering silently. Many schools have since begun investigations into potential abuse within their communities. This can be the start of the cultural shift needed to protect children at schools.
We would like to develop a product/platform/program for schools that will protect children in a way that does not reduce their freedom and fun, assure parents that their children will be safe and enable teachers and staff to be proactive in preventing and addressing abuse.
We invite you to join this think tank so we can make schools one of the Safest Places for children.
