Imagine our 6 years` innocent school going daughter is gang-raped, killed and thrown onto garbage! imagine we saw her off at school gate and we receive her dead body in rages with her body bleeding all over! Zainab Ansari was a six years old innocent girl from Kasur Pakistan who was raped and brutally killed. there are thousands of Zainabs who are assaulted mentally or physically each year. Through this project REACH will conduct 40 awareness sessions to 800 female children in schools of Johi.
According to a report published by "Sahil" a non-profit organization, up to 11 innocent children are mentally or physically abused in Pakistan. unfortunately, they are not reported by local or national media. This is one of the strongest hindrance to girls` education in Pakistan. Pakistan can not advance if half of its population is forced back from advancing to prosperity. There have been many cases of child abuse in district Dadu of Sindh as a result, parents dont allow girls` education.
Rural Empowerment And Community Help (REACH) in collaboration with local schools supported by Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) Government of Sindh, will conduct awareness sessions with girl students of SEF Schools of Taluka Johi in order to prevent the children from being prey of sexual assault. REACH organization will conduct 40 sessions and through each session 20 female students and overall 800 students will be made aware on how to be safe from sexual assaulters.
This project will educate 800 Sindhi female children to prevent sexual abuse and inspire others`parents in surrounding to allow their female children for education and contribute in harassment free environment.
