This grant will provide “KidSafe for Kids” an 8 week in school program for children ages 4 – 12, parent seminars and teacher workshops. Empowering our children through the skills taught through KidSafe will make their life a safer reality. Education is the key in prevention and can play a huge part in academic growth, social development and emotional balance.
Child abuse continues to plague our society. The statistics are staggering; 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually exploited before they reach the age of 18. KidSafe is changing these statistics by providing education to children, parents and teachers. KidSafe can’t do this alone and we thank The Schmidt Family Foundation for understanding the importance of providing prevention education to children and adults and helping us to reach so many.” said Sally Berenzweig Cofounder and Executive Director of KidSafe Foundation
