“There is no trust more sacred than the one, the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and wants and that they can grow up in peace”
Children are the most important part of our society but some cruel people are always engaged in snatching the smiles of these innocent angels.
Child sexual abuse has become a greatest problem not only in our country but also worldwide.
When adults use their power and authority over children to engage them in some sexual activity,it is called child sexual abuse. Being one of the most drastic problem, child sexual abuse should be kicked away from our society and it can be only done when we join hands together and work to remove this disease and make this world save for children.
In this world full of corruption,where every one thinks about his own benefits, there is a section of people and some organizations who still think about the benefits of others, specially the innocent children.
One of those few organizations is Sahil
It is a private organization and was established in 1996. It is the only organization in Pakistan which works exclusively against the issue of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
It’s objectives are:
- To focus on protection(betterment) of children.
- To provide free legal aid,counseling for victims.
- To eradicate the problem of child sexual abuse.
“Better to light one small candle than to curse darkness “.
With such strong belief, SAHIL is emerging as a candle of hope and happiness for all those children who need their care and love.
“Har Bacha Mehfooz ( safe,secure and healthy )”.
It is an organization with a vast vision and clear objectives i.e, to make the present and future of the children save and secure.
SAHIL has it’s branches in almost all parts of Pakistan, so that it can help the children in every corner of the country.
Islamabad (Federal capital)
“The achievement of an organization are the results of combined efforts of each individual “
They say, they encourage the volunteers , so that they work more devotedly and become sincere to their assigned tasks. Sahil realized this thing and for this purpose it conducted a best volunteer award ceremony in Marriott Islamabad on 29 March,2011.
Role of Sahil Volunteers

“You haven’t lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you “
