Mothers and Children assured of Support
You Have Support
Many mothers and young girls have been subjected to many injustices over time. Among those is; GBV, HIV/AIDs stigma, defilement and rape among others.
Some of these cases have not been reported and they have had a silent death, some have been reported but not properly managed, and this has led to a lot of both physical and psychological distress to the victims.
In conjunction with Officials from the Ministry of Gender Labor and Social Development the Probation’s office Kibaale yesterday trained different stakeholders about the new tool that can be used in reporting all forms of cases on our society and these included Peter Nsamba who represented the CAO, Jimmy Mukasa DCDO, cultural leaders, religious leaders, journalists, politicians and youth leaders.
SafePal is the mobile Application that was introduced to the stakeholders to help in reporting these cases in our communities. It is a platform that young people (10-24 years) can use to confidentially report cases of sexual violence and get linked to the nearest service providers for help.
In his remarks the Principal Assistant Secretary Peter Nsamba said that the tool will help scale back cases related to sexual violence, GBV and work related discrimination cases among others. He further stresses that the Kibaale as district has fully fledged staff to man the growing threat.
