It is incredible that sometimes even the most basic of rights is denied. There are millions of refugees in Egypt. Many of them have been abused on their way to Egypt. Some have traveled many miles on foot, and others hid in the back of trucks to be able to come.
At St Joseph's Church in Zamalek, sister Teresa serves Eritrean refugees of all religions and denominations. She ministers to them physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
Sister Teresa asked Not Guilty Inc to train Eritrean refugee children on boundaries, sexual abuse, and how to prevent and report it.
The sad thing was that most of the kids and teens had no clue that having boundaries were their right.
Learning about boundaries empowered them and set them free.
There were 200 kids and teens.
The training was interactive and had many games, videos, and group games.
Not Guilty was asked to return and do a three-day conference for 200 others: parents, teens, and kids.
Not Guilty Inc hired a translator to translate from Arabic to Eritrean. The translator, Dina had much to say. She herself said that she had learned so much that day. She never realised that having boundaries brings freedom and self respect. She ralized that NO is a good word and that it does not make her a bad person to refuse someone overstepping her boundaries.
