Girl child sexual abuse

My fellow women,

If our daughters are given all the information that is needed, be supported fully (financially) I believe we can come up with a wonderful generation for girls in the near future. In Kenya (my country) what pushes most of our young girls to sexual abuse is due to lack of support from their poor parents (most of them are poor). Like when some are lucky and get an opportunity to further education to university level, you find that they get mixed up with the girls from rich families who have every thing they require and those from poor families have nothing and yet they are on the same level of education. You find that those poor girls get into contact with rich men who attract them with a lot of money in exchange for sex yet they are still young. The poor girls have no option but to accept and give out their bodies to get money to satisfy their needs because for sure they need the money for their daily upkeep. These rich old men spoil our young poor daughters by showing them a lot of money as they misuse their bodies.

At the work place, for a young girl to get a good job, even if she has shining certificates, these old men bosses demand to taste their bodies first to put them to the right scale. What a hell is this ??? Please help our girls
By so doing, most of them contract HIV/AIDS from these rich men and they die at a tender age.

We need to work out on some projects to save our daughters awareness has to spread all over so that we may reduce such cases by supporting our girls through other means for them to know that it is not through sex that a woman can be able to get money. More projects have to come up in aid of them.

Communication

I think some of these ordeals are happening due to lack of communication between parents and their children, because I am pretty sure that if there is a constant dialogue between the parties, hopefully it will make a different.
