This is an informative guide for youngsters and their parents,
at building their defensibility against child molest at every level.
Hi my name is Monique Tilborg I am the managing director of the media company SU BIZZ online “SRANAN SANI”. I know that you don't know me, I believe you will, during the process. But I'm pretty sure that we have this one thing in common. And that you are as familiar with the problem that I'm facing on a daily basis.
Isn't it true, that every time we open a newspaper that we read something like: A 4 year old child has been sexually molested by her uncle / aunt?
Doesn't it saddens you? But most of all, did you ever questioned yourself, what can, and will I do about this?! If you never did, well this is your queue.
First some facts
The reason why this informative youth guide has to be written!
The annual statistics on the evil occurrence of sexual child molest are tipping over the scale, into the wrong direction, if you ask me. It seems as though, it isn't safe for your children to go out anymore. Because it appears that the pedophile is feeling more confident and secure by the day, to surrender to his/her morbid pleasures, where and whenever they please.
Before I head into details I want you to know that Suriname is a country in S.A., with a total population of 560.000 people. The annual report presented by the Department of Youth Affairs of the Police Corps of Suriname at the end of the year 2013 showed the following figures. In 2013 there were, 373 cases of sexual child abuse, in 2012 there were 341 cases. And these are only the cases which were reported. So the numbers are probably higher. I couldn't obtain the statistics of 2014 yet.
This increasing trend is a direct threat to the physical, mental en emotional health of our children, not only here in Surinam but worldwide. We have to take affirmative action before there are more victims demanded by this cancer spreading like wildfire throughout society.
According to the Department of Youth Affairs of the Police Corps of Suriname children between the age of 0-17 years are daily victimized by this type of sexual violence. The perpetrators come from the immediate vicinity of the victims. And diverse in ethical group, social class, profession and positions. The abuse takes place in different institutes of society, such as: at home, kinder garden, the shelter, school bus, recreation clubs ect.
The culprit is often a confidant of the victim. For example, a member of the immediate family or extended family, or an family friend, neighbor, babysitter, acquaintance and so on. Usually there is a authority relationship, where the child has to submit to the adult, because of some kind of dependency.
It is known that many advocate the harmonization of the laws, where demanding of higher penalties against child molesters are eminent. This is true of course and has to be done. Although it is not preventing sexual child molest from happening, but rather deals with the consequence of the matter.
But what about now?!
These solutions point out to future events. Since we can do little about abuse of power and can't by any means force the government of making haste to adjust laws on sexual child molest. Personally I am in favor to work on the preventive side of the matter. I want to mobilize the worldwide community to contribute to the awareness of young people regarding to this worsening social evil. How you ask me?!
