Kids and Teens Court Awareness Program
“The Kids and Teens Court Awareness Program (KTCAP) is a collaboration between Justice Cecilia Muñoz Palma Foundation, Inc. (JCMPF), Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Sexual Abuse (CPTCSA), and Action against Violence and Exploitation, Inc. (ACTVE).
Originally initiated by the King County Kid’s Court of Seattle, the court awareness program was adopted and adjusted by CPTCSA in order to fit the Philippine context. It aims to empower children who have been victims and witnesses of exploitation and abuse to actively seek justice by asserting their rights and going through the legal processes. By helping children become aware of the court processes and their role in it, fear and misconceptions that inhibit them from testifying in court are reduced.”
