* UNICEF: Supporting victims of child sexual abuse in Indonesia
* 25 Apr 2007

Lombok, a picturesque tropical island…one of the thousands that make up the Indonesian archipelago. But behind the islands obvious beauty lies an ugly secret. One that is found everywhere, from major cities to small towns and villages. The issue is child abuse. A hidden crime that affects the world’s most vulnerable citizens, children. But some people are now willing to speak out. Eight and a half year old ”Melati” and her father are seeking help from LPA, a child protection body that is supported by UNICEF. 

The organization aims to seek justice and support victims of child abuse, like little Melati, one of the latest victims who has found her way here. 

Warniati says melati went to visit a friend one day.. the girls relative, who is also a teacher, brought her into his room and raped her…. The first of several sexual attacks. Several days later her mother noticed something strange about her daughter .. something about the way she walked.she brought her to the health clinic. They saw she was bleeding and after an internal exam …. Determined she had been sexually abused. The parents say the man told their little girl she would be killed if she told anyone. LPA is trying to ensure that the suspect, who is now in police custody, is tried under the child protection law which has a maximum sentence of 15 years… six more than under the criminal code. UNICEF is supporting these goals and is also working with hospital staff and police to create a referral system, which includes enlisting women police officers that are trained to deal with children who have been abused. These fourth graders attend the Batu Kumbung satu elementary school. Its one of the many under UNICEF’s child-friendly school program, which includes educating teachers about the adverse affects of corporal punishment and how to identify children who have been abused. The students are an integral part of the program and learn that they too have rights and do not have to be victimized. Here teacher Yeti Pratiwi is talking to the children about the pictures they drew that reflect their views about abuse. Is it OK for children to be beaten.. she asks No it’s not right they reply. Bringing the issue of abuse to light is key to protecting children. This can be done by giving them the tools they need to protect themselves and by supporting them when they need it most.
