Olympic gold medallist Carolina Marin joined the fight against sexual abuse of children. The ace player tweeted a video of her joining hands with Masoom, a project run by Young Indians and showed her support.

With a message titled “We must protect our children”, she shared a video saying, “Child safety in a very important subject and I am very happy to spread about project Masoom, which is an initiative by Young Indians…Let us lend our hands to protect children of our countries against child sexual abuse”

Young Indians, an integral part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), is a non-government, not-for- profit, industry led and industry managed organisation playing a proactive role in India’s development process. Young Indians was formed in the year 2002 with an objective of creating a platform for young Indians to realise the dream of a developed nation. They have conceived the project ‘Masoom’ to keep children safe by creating awareness on child safety amongst young children, parents, and other stakeholders.

The need arose as there is an increasing number of such cases and also large numbers of cases are not being reported. The idea was to create better awareness about the issue and effectively spread the message. The project will also be introduced in schools to educate the parents, teachers and children about the issue.

Carolina had played for the Bengaluru-based team Banga Beats in the inaugural edition of the Indian Badminton League (IBL) in 2013. She also beat Saina Nehwal of India at the 2015 World Championship and had also won a gold medal by beating India’s P.V Sindhu in the singles final at the 2016 Summer Olympics at Rio, Brazil. She is also part of the PBL Hyderabad Hunters team.

By roping in Marin, we hope the project will get a global recognition and more awareness in the sporting world, thereby encouraging other sportspersons to come forward and support more such causes.
