Learning from Children Exposed to Sexual Abuse and Sexual Exploitation: The Bamboo Project Study on Child Resilience

This report was written in January 2014 by Helen Veitch, Milan Dharel and Rakshya Ojha as part of a series of reports comprising the Bamboo Project – a three-country learning initiative to understand resilience in children exposed to sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. The report presents the findings from an 18 month participatory research project in Nepal from 2012 to 2013 that looked at what can be learned from the life experience of children, adults, families and communities and programme practice that contributes to an understanding of resilience in the prevention of and recovery from child sexual abuse and exploitation.
