Boca Raton, FL—KidSafe Foundation (www.kidsafefoundation.org) has received a generous grant from the Salah Foundation to bring child safety and prevention education programs to South Florida elementary schools.
KidSafe will use the grant to provide four elementary schools with safety education programs that aim to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying, and Internet dangers. Each recipient school will receive a parent seminar, a teacher workshop, and eight-week program for students in grades Kindergarten, 2nd, and 5th.
“We are so grateful to the Salah Foundation for giving us the opportunity to extend our child safety programs to four more South Florida schools,” said Sally Berenzweig, KidSafe Foundation Co-founder. “KidSafe believes that by arming parents, teachers, and students with the knowledge and tools necessary to keep kids safe, we can eliminate child abuse and exploitation.”
“The Salah Foundation is proud to support KidSafe Prevention Education programs in local elementary schools. The Penn State Sexual Abuse scandal was a call to action. It seems odd that fire safety education is mandatory within our children’s schools, but personal safety education is not. What is more common, schools being destroyed by fire, or school age children being destroyed by sexual abuse? Until this paradox is resolved, it will be necessary for those of us with common sense to fund personal safety programs for our own children.” said George Taylor, Esq., Salah Foundation Board Member.
