We live in a country where people are not made aware of the concept of “consent”. Especially, there is no scope for the younger ones to know what consent even means.
All thanks to the BRAC educational program, this educational video has everything about consent that we need to show our younger ones in the most children-friendly way possible.

This child-friendly video differentiates “good touch” from “bad touch”. It illustrates the concept of “private body parts” in a very simple way. It also talks for both the young boys and young girls and teaches them to be courageous.
The video tells them in the simplest ways, to speak up whenever they feel their body-boundaries are being violated by anyone close or distant. If anything nonconsensual happens to them, children are encouraged to share that with their parents and teachers without any fear of getting scolded at.
You see, the “bad guy” here can be anyone! Can be of any genders. Can be a relative or a stranger. And this group of people with vile intentions sometimes persuade young children with toys and foods. The video teaches the children not to get lured by the attractions, and to inform their parents before going anywhere.
We need to give everyone- no matter what the age- a voice. We need to give children a reassurance-
“Hey, child, you are not responsible for someone else’s disgusting action driven by his/her sickening motive. Do not feel guilty for something bad you experienced in which you did not have a say. Do not be afraid to speak up. You are not alone, we all are here, and we are listening to you.“
