The mission of Beyond Innocence Foundation is to help children going through abuse, offer them a safe haven and help them enjoy their childhood and rebuild their lives. By removing the minors from unsafe environmente, our objective is to provide a safe temporary home where kids will have the chance to continue with their education, receive emotional and psychological counseling while we find them permanent safe and stable foster homes.
There are many cases that go unreported. Cases of young girls and boys going through abuse under the care of people who are supposed to protect and take care of them. Most of these kids are orphans or come from very poor background where the biological parents are not able to provide the basic needs for them, hence are forced to seek refuge at relatives or neighbours.
Research has also shown that some of these abuse cases are carried out by one biological parent when the other parent passes on and kids are left under the care of the surviving parent. In most cases, the surviving parent has an alcohol or drug addiction.
All or majority of such cases go unreported because of fear of stigmatization, shame and general fear instilled in these young kids's mind by society or their abusers. The fact that there are no concrete laws at community level, that clearly state how to ''punish'' abusers or deal with such cases, cases like these don't get resolved quick enough. In some situations, perpetrators get away with abuse and carry on for years abusing these kids. The ''shame'' is also a major contributing factor for such cases going unreported.
