As a non-governmental organization, Jiaozuo Education Aid Association takes “building a loving platform for the development of teenager” as its mission. It is in Jiaozuo, Henan.
In the afternoon of November 3, 2013, Jiaozuo Education Aid Association held the 3rd annual "protecting children from sexual assault" event.
The activity was held from 2:00 to 5:00 in the afternoon. The location was the commercial center of Jiaozuo City. Wearing red vests and caps, the volunteers walked through the crowd and explained to people the purpose of the event. They also collected signatures and distributed leaflets. They had been working and planning the activity for a long time. The signatures were gathered on note paper, which can be recycled and thus helps the environment. In the end, the volunteers received a lot of positive feedback from the community.
In 3 hours, about 2000 leaflets were distributed and over 600 signatures were collected. Hundreds of people gathered to listen to the speeches of the volunteers. The activity was welcomed and praised by most of the passersby. One of mothers watching even asked her child to participate in the activity and act as a volunteer.
The activity improved awareness of child protection from sexual assault in the community. We hope that this activity can save a child and protect the happiness of a family. Our volunteers are happy to do their part to contribute to social responsibility.
