Bodies and boundaries

This workshop is aimed at children aged 4 years or older. Its goal is to teach children that they have agency over their own bodies and that no one is allowed to touch their bodies without their consent. It also provides children with guidance on what to do if their body boundaries are violated.

Activity sheets and a poster for the classroom or home are also included.

The ‘My Body is Mine’ storybook by Dr. Nuwan Thotawatta uses a simple story featuring a wise mango tree to give children the knowledge of what to do if they ever encounter child abuse. It is available in Sinhala, Tamil and English and can be purchased from Samayawardana Bookshop (63, Hikkaduwe Sri Sumangala Nahimi Mawatha, Maligakanda Road, Colombo 10): We highly recommend this book and believe that every child should have a copy.
