JOIN US ON THE STREET!!!

ANTI RAPE/SEXUAL ASSAULT WALK!

Is child sexual assault acceptable in your community? Our values and beliefs do not condone child sexual abuse, and yet we allow it to continue. When we do nothing, we are failing our children. We as parents, former children, brothers, sisters, friends, aunties, humans should work together to eliminate opportunities for child sexual abuse and drive rapists out of our communities.

Partnership for Justice and Mirabel Centre invite you to its ANTI RAPE/SEXUAL ASSAULT WALK.

DATE: NOVEMBER 25 2014
TIME: 8AM
STARTING POINT: IKEJA UNDER BRIDGE
END POINT: DEPUTY GOVERNOR’S OFFICE

CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE!.
