The Chief Executive Officer of Guide and Save Adolescent Foundation Madam Gifty Amissah has admonished parents in the country especially the women to muster courage and report people found of abusing their children in their communities.
Madam Gifty Amiisah is of the strong believe that the loud silence of such parents to report issues against their wards especially the female child was having negative impact on their wards.
Speaking to SOMPA NEWS, Madam Gifty Amissah who is also a Midwife by profession stated that such unfortunate incident has become the order of the day to the extent that some women are failing to expose such people who are sometimes members of their families.
Madam Gifty Amiissah said it was pathetic on the part of the girl to refuse reporting their abusers to the right authorities adding that the matters could still be carried out while at the same time protecting their privacy.
She exclaimed, “the rate at which some of these innocent girls are defield and abused was completely getting out of hands. Some of the mothers are at faults since they are falling to report their children’s abusers. They are failing to report because they want to keep their marriages which is wrong. Parents must be concerned with the future of their wards no matter the background of the perpetrators.”
Madam Gifty Amissah further pleaded to the leaders in the communities to stop mitigating in matters of rape and other forms of abuse adding that the future of the girl must be paramount to all and sundry.
Madam Gifty Amissah who is the Chief Executive Officer Guide and Save Adolescent Foundation based in the Edfiduase in the Ashanti Region,and through her advocacy, a number of the children of school going age are empowered with knowledge to resist advances of rape or defilement and report such incidents in case they fall victim.
