Body Smarts Through Movement Arts

Our Approach

We recognise that child sexual abuse happens because of the actions of the abusers, and that safeguarding at various levels – family, community, society, policy – can make a big difference to the reduction of harm to children.

We also believe that all children and young persons have the right to education about their health and well-being (UNCRC, Article 24). This includes information and skills relating to body safety. Though adults have the responsibility to keep children and young persons safe, children can be equipped to differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour, and be empowered with safety steps that lower their level of risk and harm.

The Body Smarts Through Movement Arts Approach Includes:

Body Smarts For Safer Adults

Body safety and consent education for parents, school staff, teachers, community workers, volunteers, etc.

Body Smarts For School-aged Children & Youths

Body safety and consent education for diverse children & youths ages 7 and above, through school and community groups

Body Smarts For Young Children & Families

Body safety and consent education for children under 7 years with their primary caregivers

Body Smarts Facilitator Training

Customised train-the-trainer programme for teachers and staff to deliver body safety and consent education to their diverse communities

Advocacy & Partnership Efforts
