I was a protected child, came from a family of 7. (5 girls and 2 boys). Let me share a little story with y'all to commemorate #InternationalYouthDay #Issathread #LifePlanningGIT #SafeSpaces4Youth
I had this playgroup that consist children my age but an older boy of about 15 among us that was always calling me ''my wife" lol Little did I know he meant it literally #LifeplanningGIT
We will sit down aside and play "mummy and Daddy, police and thief, tantaloose and all and he will always lead the games and champion me when I win #LifePlanningGIT
So while playing my parents noticed the threats the boy posed to me and will always say "Missy be careful" I never knew what they use to warn me about unroll a day the boy almost raped me. #LifeplanningGIT
What they should have told me was that "he is older and wiser and is a potential threat as regards my sexuality, they should have sat me down and teach me the pants rule #LifeplanningGIT
They should have better Create #SafeSpace4Youth and me in this case by educating me with information to protect from predators and paedophiles so I don't become a rape victim like many of my peers. #LifeplanningGIT
#safespaces4youth I didn't fall prey to that lil boy but I eventually still became a victim of child molestation because the society didn't dim it fit to educate and empower me with enough #sexualandreproductive Information to keep me safe #LifeplanningGIT
A safe space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express themselves without fear of being unsafe on acct of sex,race etc. The society needs to do more in protecting adolescents and youths in Nigeria #LifeplanningGIT
The provision of #safespace is thus an essential component of effective community #youth programs in #healthpromotion that aim to enhance +ve youth development #LifeplanningGIT
Mental, physical safety is the right of every youth and adolescents and information and education is the first steps to preventing us from harm and keeping us safe #LifeplanningGIT
