Join Amanda Griffith, CEO of Family for Every Child in conversation with Zeny Rosales from the Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Sexual Abuse (known as CPTCSA) in the Philippines. CPTCSA provides therapeutic support to young perpetrators and survivors of child sexual abuse, and trains parents and foster carers of children who have been sexually abused. 

In this final episode of our Power of Civil Society mini-series we hear about a clear example of a practice exchange between CSOs leading to a joint research project, which in turn provided the evidence for collaborative advocacy efforts. Zeny and Amanda discuss this trajectory using the example of a project that looked at the issue of sexual violence affecting boys. They also discuss the latest initiative on the same issue: The Blue Umbrella Day campaign, a current advocacy campaign that CPTCSA is co-leading with three other CSOs that aims to raise awareness of how to better care for and protect boys from sexual violence.
