When a WhatsApp forward convinced a girl to stop sexual abuse happening in her community

We have heard of countless instances where a WhatsApp forward has created a ruckus. For a change, we found one where someone took the baton to turns things around for Good. 

Talking about being abused in any sort of way is not easy to come by. People get mistreated in many ways and find it difficult to find their voice and speak out about it. As much as it shouldn’t be, sexual abuse, especially among children, is very common. More so in the rural areas of India where children have not received any form of sex education. They are unaware of what it is and are scared to come forward about it simply because they are embarrassed and ashamed of the act.
