About Oak Foundation
Oak Foundation www.oakfnd.ch commits its resources to address issues of global social and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged. With offices in Europe, Africa, and North America, Oak Foundation has an annual grant-making budget of over USD 250 million and makes grants to organisations located in 41 countries worldwide.
The Prevent CSA Programme envisions a world where child sexual abuse and exploitation are prevented. The team works to end child sexual abuse and exploitation, online and off-line. We promote solutions and advance actions to strengthen prevention, and we strive to end impunity and create strong accountability for child sexual abuse where it occurs. We believe that together we can shift the paradigm from silence and neglect to prevention, scaled response, visibility, and accountability.
We work through two sub-programmes that: (1) promote, scale and advance solutions to reduce child sexual abuse; and (2) hold global institutions accountable to prevent abuse and to end impunity for child sexual abuse. http://oakfnd.org/prevent-child-sexual-abuse.html
