Sandhosh is climbing Everest in Support of the cause against Child Sexual Abuse. To support the cause, pls visit www.millionpledges.com and take a pledge against Child Sexual Abuse…
Child Sexual Abuse is a Crime. We often believe that sexual abuse of children cannot occur in our homes. The harsh reality is otherwise. It is a fact that victims can be a boy or a girl, rich or poor, educated or illiterate.
The abuser is often someone known – a relative, friend, teacher, or even a parent. The refusal to acknowledge the possibility of abuse taking place is the root cause of child sexual abuse being inadequately addressed and tackled in India.
Having said that, we may not be able to change the scenario overnight, but each one of us can certainly do a little. Each one of us can pledge what at our individual level, we will not get involved in Child Sexual Abuse. Tiny drops can make mighty ocean and a million pledges CAN make a difference.
Requesting each one of you to visit www.millionpledges.com and make a pledge against Child Sexual Abuse… Every pledge counts. The website also has host of information about Child Sexual Abuse.
You can also help the cause by keeping the msg “I’ve pledged against Child Sexual Abuse at www.millionpledges.com, have you?” as your gtalk status
The initiative is being taken as a part of Sandhosh Kumar’s mission Everest, who is currently climbing Mount Everest to support the cause of Child Sexual Abuse.

Its easier talking than doing. How many of us really take initiatives to show our concern or help some causes we feel worried about? Here is a young man who didn’t stop with his feeling for the cause but has plunged into an action to support the cause.
As I write this post, Sadhosh Kumar has already set out on his journey towards the Everest. Yesterday he was at Namche Bazaar, 3460m above mean sea level, a famous spot enroute Everest Base Camp. We’ll give more updates on his climb on a regular basis.
Sandhosh Kumar hails from South India who graduated and worked in Singapore as an Investment Banker and realized his deep passion for climbing mountains. Sandhosh Kumar is a guy who has always been an adrenalin chaser and he developed a fascination for snow-capped mountains over the last few years and that’s how he wanted to change his passion to reach out a good cause. Sandhosh Kumar says as he climbs more, he realized that the chase for personal quest alone wasn’t enough. There are many problems in this world and he wanted his climbs to mean more to him and the world. Hence, he embarked on a journey to highlight the problem closest to his heart, the problem of child sexual abuse, which is highly prevalent in India, while he attempted to scale the highest mountain in the world.
To mention few of his earlier achievements he climbed some of the highest peaks in the world- Cho Oyu (8201m), Mont Blanc in Western Europe (4810m), Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa (5895m) and Everest Base Camp. Sandhosh Kumar is all set to take off for an ambitious mission of climbing Mount Everest, besides climbing Everest he is actively supporting the cause of Child Sexual Abuse through pursuing his passion for climbing mountains. He has come up with a novel plan to raise funds — for the expedition as well as to help the organizations in raising funds. He has been meeting with corporates and individuals through a campaign titled “ClimbEverestWithMe” to substitute his expedition cost and raise funds for child sexual abuse.
Please check the video below where Sandhosh Kumar is interviewed about his mission and passion by Shrinidhi Hande Sandhosh Kumar was one of the participants in the prestigious achievers gang-up “Cerebrate”
