Safe World Field Partner, COFAPRI, encourages Nyangezi parents to be open about sexual issues with their children.
Nyangezi is situated in the eastern part of DR Congo… It consists of more than 13 villages, and it is here COFAPRI decided to start with its activities of helping women and girl victims of war and domestic violence.
In most African countries, including the DRC, sexual issues remain a taboo discussion between parents and children, and even grown-up people are not allowed to discuss the issue in public.
This belief generates dire consequences, such as that some women and girls who are sexually violated, fail to report the issue.
COFAPRI believes that this should be overcome, and that people should move with time…
