Millions of children worldwide are subjected to violence. Protecting children from violence, exploitation and abuse is an integral component of protecting their rights to survival, growth and development. CASA as committee against sexual abuse were the first to implement national law in child protection. CASA also advocates and supports the creation of a protective environment for children in partnership with governments, national and international partners including the private sector, and civil society.

“For the future of our children we try to spread our wings by joining the force for protecting children that provide by U.S. government in Indonesia”, said Professor Luh Ketut Suryani as the president of the committee. The meeting was held in Jakarta, on January 13-14, 2011 at Gran Melia Hotel.

“We felt fortunate as the only organization that invited from outside Jakarta although we were the first to use the child protection law in Indonesia”, said Suryani as she feels that more children are particularly vulnerable to a range of risks like separation from family, recruitment into armed forces, sexual exploitation and gender-based violence, physical harm, and psychosocial distress. As the meeting ended, the FBI promises a continuing support in sharing knowledge and information on child protection.
