Sothawaca inaugurates Children’s Empowerment Network and Club

SOTHAWACA as part of her mandates has decided to create a Children’s Empowerment Network and Club in 8 Clans/Wards of Illueha. This is a new dynamic group that is dealing with gender imbalances. The organization through this network is positioning itself at the right time in the community as it has saved and continues to save young females in our society from incidences of rape, HIV/AIDS and prostitution, all prominent ills in our
community today.

The general situation in our society is that there is gender imbalance in all aspects of life. Generally, the boy child is given priority in all aspects of life. This has resulted in the escalating number of homeless girls, school drop-outs, child prostitution, rape and early marriages and pregnancies. A major concern is the health and education of the girl child which is put at risk with most girls dying of Maternal Mortality and HIV/AIDS at an
early age.
