What is CSAPP?
The Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program Inc (CSAPP) is a unique and innovative Australian independent Non-Profit Association. It was established in 1995 and since then has provided education and support to over 80,000 children, young people and adults within Australia and internationally. CSAPP has pioneered and implemented programs that aim primarily to educate Australian children, parents and teachers on ways to avoid, identify and seek appropriate help for child sexual abuse.
Since its inception CSAPP has received numerous awards for its outstanding work in the area of child protection. For example, CSAPP was the overall joint winner of the Australian Violence Prevention Award in 1998 (awarded by the Australian Prime Minister and Premiers of all Australian States) and received the National Child Abuse and Prevention Award for Innovation in 2001.
In this job you see the darkest side of human nature. But to see the little lives whose potential could have been stolen from them, regain that potential and become happy and have a childhood - it makes it all worth it.
