Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I aspire to create a better world for children since I enjoy working with them. I purpose to review and refine current policies on child protection which really undermine the victims of sexual abuse and benefit most perpetrators especially those who are socially and financially enriched as compared to the victims/survivors.
It's all part of making a better world.
The hope that through my vision and policy, I will be able to change the world. Especially the young survivors of sexual abuse who are made to feel responsible for what they went through. No child deserves to be violated or blamed for what they experienced. I hope to change the country’s view on child and trauma counsellors who work tirelessly to ensure that these children deal with their hurt.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by abused children as well as therapists who help them deal with their traumas.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Review and refine current policies on child protection
Hefty punishments on perpetrators
Create more facilities (safe houses) where abused children can be protected.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will know that I have achieved my goals through several ways:
1. When my policy is implemented
2. Notice an increase in safe houses
3. Talk to members on the community and get back positive feedback
4. Encounter cases where the perpetrator(s) is captured and punished for his crime
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
