India is the home of the largest number of children in the world, and Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) is one of her big frame problems, like several other problems of poor health conditions and school dropouts that come under the issues of violation of child rights and their protection. However, CSA is very much rampant not only in India but across the globe. Consequently, this is one of the most serious problems against children and is discussed among all development professionals to curb the rates of incidents of CSA. The victims of CSA encounter several problems, such as psychological and emotional disorders, for their entire lifetime. This form of child rights exploitation is usually unreported as it is still a sort of stigma in Indian society. But in recent years, there have been cases reported, and several steps have been taken to check the rates of such incidents. Thus, this paper attempts to look into this form of child rights exploitation through several case studies, their effects, and the role played by NGOs and will also look into the social work interventions with suitable suggestions.
