In conservative communities, it is very important to address the cultural sensitivity of each community. The goal is to be aligned with the various elements in the community, to identify appropriate people in the school / community who will lead the process and build a series of lectures and workshops for parents, school staffs, adolescence, children and preschoolers with the appropriate sensitivity and thus increase the sense of sexual safety and ability to share experiences with responsible adults. Our staff for these communities consists of professional counselors from within these sectors.
Kids & Families
The Internet has many advantages but also creates various challenges for children. Reaserches show that young children are exposed to abusive content of all kinds on the web.
