I thought that children were only meant to be born and live. It never occurred to me that they had rights too

Mwabishi Mwandalo

Being at the training has opened my mind especially with matters regarding marital rape as I thought this was non-existent. From now henceforth I will always respect my wife’s stand when it comes to bedroom matters as opposed to my previous engagements with her

Salim Chilungu

I had no idea that our grandparents were being offensive when jokingly teasing our children when growing us they touch their private parts or breasts as they grew older in a joking manner. I realize now that this is punishable in the eyes of the law as gathered from the training

Mwanapili Hamisi

I now know that I have a right to ask why I am being charged for an offence without just following the police directives in silence. These occurrences have been prevalent in our areas near the border where the police harass us as we fetch firewood, sometimes they threaten to have us jailed and request for bribery.
