IT TAKES CHILDREN LIFTING THE VOICES OF YOUNG LEADERS

This report was photographed and written by 21 children and young people, aged 13 to 18, who are part of the World Vision Young Leaders project, which aims to equip and empower them to engage in actions to end violence. I have had the privilege of working with these children and young people from countries throughout Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. I have watched them create a global network where they communicate, share their own experiences and the experiences of other children in their countries, and together try to find solutions to the problems that affect them, especially those related to violence. They write blogs, represent their peers at high-level debates, and speak in the name of all the children who do not have a voice.

Our Bodies book

One in three South African children will be sexually abused in some way by age 17.Jelly Beanz believes that parents and caregivers can help prevent the abuse of their children by having open and honest conversations about bodies, sex and body rules. These conversations should start as children enter formal schooling. The Our Bodies book has been developed to guide parents through this difficult, but very important process.

FAQ’s:

Is my child not too young to learn about sex?

  • It is a parent’s privilege to be the first person to speak to a child about bodies and sexuality. You will impart the facts of life, but also the values and morals that you want your child to have. If children do not learn about sex from a parent by the time they enter formal schooling, it is only a question of time before another child, a sibling or the internet will inform them.

Will my child not become overly interested in sex if I talk about it?

  • No. Young children are generally more interested in how babies develop than in how they are conceived.

Schools do sex education, can I leave it to the school to have the talk with my child?

  • Schools do sex education and it is important for educators to speak to young people about sexuality. If your child has questions or problems it would be better for your child to speak to you rather than at school.

UNTREATED VIOLENCE: Critical gaps in medical and clinical forensic care for survivors of sexual violence in South Africa

With the objective of verifying whether designated facilities have the capacity to provide comprehensive medical and clinical forensic care for survivors of sexual violence, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) conducted a nation-wide telephonic mapping of designated facilities in October 2017, providing an initial overview of what service provision gaps exist at designated facilities. The mapping, together with MSF experience working with the North West Department of Health in Bojanala District, informs recommendations on how to improve the provision of care in the future. Since 2015, MSF has supported the North West Department of Health (NWDoH) in providing comprehensive patient-centred services for survivors of sexual violence in Bojanala District.

Transforming Masculinities

Developed by Tearfund, Transforming Masculinities is an evidence-based approach to promote gender equality and positive masculinities within faith communities. It is based upon the understanding that spiritual beliefs and faith leaders are part of the structure that shapes social and gender norms, and focuses on prevention and response to sexual and gender-based violence.
