We at Guinness World Record would like to congratulate Mr. Kailash Satyarthi and his foundation and confirm, you are officially amazing.”

On 11th October, a historic day for children’s safety when Mr. Satyarthi took the class on ‘increasing awareness on the dangers of sexual abuse’ at the DAV Centenary Public School in Jaipur that was attended by 15000 students. Simultaneously, across India, this module was conducted by teachers over 693 DAV schools across the 23 states of West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Sikkim, Rajasthan, Punjab, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Manipur, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Delhi, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh. Additionally, government and private schools in the states of Assam, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and NPS schools of Delhi-NCR will also conducted the session under the guidelines provided by the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation, with approximately 4 crore children participating in this lesson.

Mr Kailash Satyarthi said, “The world witnessed an unprecedented moment when close to 4 crore Indian children joined the war on rape and sexual abuse. They participated in the world’s largest child safeguarding lesson across India. This is the most effective attack on the age-old mindsets that stigmatise and blame the victims and strengthen the perpetrator. Today, I am confident that India’s children understand that they own their body, mind and soul. Since this generation is ready to protect itself, it is a guarantee that the generations to come will be protected.”

There were several hundreds of schools that simultaneously took the special session designed by Mr Satyarthi himself in the state of Rajasthan.
Mr. Kailash Satyarthi has embarked on a 35-day ‘Bharat Yatra’, to create awareness and seek solutions to combat the growing menace of child sexual abuse and trafficking.
Ever since its launch, Bharat Yatra has been drawing enormous support from citizens across India. People cutting across faith, geography, profession and vocation are coming together to support the Yatra and the creation of a safe India for our children. They are collectively striving for better laws, stronger implementation and faster modes of redressal for victims of abuse and trafficking.
