Share your thoughts , advises and comments - join hands to reduce this crime.


Your first reaction if possible is to get away from that danger as quick as possible and run
away screaming for help. However we caution on the following areas.

Even if it’s daytime, late hours or at night, avoid risk areas such as dark places, dimly lit areas, lonely places, bushy areas, short-cuts, being alone in a room with a man other than your husband, fiancée or brother.

Walk with eyes and ears open, because some rapists may surprise you although some are cunning. They can grab you, knock you down, tear your clothes or even use drugs.

It’s good practice especially when it’s late to walk in company of known friends,workmates or schoolmates, incase rapists strike they can easily raise alarm and get help
when you are many.

Never trust men hundred percent unless he is your husband or fiancée. Rapists don’t have outward signs, they could be strangers or people you know very well. Take care during
dates or parties and make sure that the venue is a public place, have an interest to know how drinks or food are served. You should be aware of the motive behind that party or date and if it is really necessary.

When you are at home, school, place of work or anywhere else, make sure you wear clothes which don’t embarrass you, or which attract too much negative attention from
men/boys. We are not against how you should dress, but the question is how safe or respectful are you in public places, institutions, place of work or even at home.

Avoid that habit of sending your daughters late at night to the shops, river, poshomill, beg for items in other peoples’ homes’ or anywhere else. Don’t leave your daughters no matter how young with male strangers or distant relatives
you are not sure of. Avoid buying your daughters always sweet things like sweets, cakes, jaggery and biscuits
etc. They will get used to it so much that if they fail to get in future, they can easily be tempted to accept them from strangers who can use this to lure and rape them.Avoid too much leisure life for your daughters, it must be occasional, should they be used to it and fail to get it in future, they can be tempted to accept money or services from any man or boy and it could be a trap to rape them one day.

Avoid situations and lifestyles that could lead you to be raped. Not all men are bad, there are only few misbehaving most of them are very respectful, caring and good fathers, husbands brothers, uncles, grandfathers, neighbours and friends.

So don’t condemn them in general
1. Don’t accept to show a stranger away if he claims to be lost, instead tell him to seek help from fellow men and if he insists ran away from him and scream for help.
2. Don’t accept lifts from people you don’t know, these could be cars, bikes or motor bikes.
3. Be aware of people who come to your school, church or any where else claiming to have been sent by your parents and yet it is all false.
4. Don’t accept money, sweet things and snack foods from people you don’t know or even shamba boys, watchmen or even male neighbours.
5. Take care when you are from or to school, shop, rivers etc, don’t respond to calls by people you don’t know.
6. Don’t make a habit of being close to male neighbours and even going to the extent of playing with them every time.
7. When you are to or from somewhere on foot and notice a man blocking your way avoid him, if he still blocks you go back while screaming for help.
8. When you are from school or anywhere else, go home quickly and avoid playing too much on the way.
9. It is good to walk in groups so that if someone surprises you, you can raise an alarm and easily get help.
10. Avoid unnecessary shaking hands with men or boys you don’t know anyhowly, they can refuse with your hand and pull you to a place they can rape or defile you.
11. Avoid being out or going out to the shops, poshomill, or river late hours.
12. Avoid being carried anyhowly shoulder high by boys or men even if you know them, they can easily rape/defile you.
13. A good child does not loiter on the way home, you should make sure that you are at home before it is late.
14. Don’t bath naked where people can easily see you even if it is at home or in the river, while at home use the bathroom and make sure it is locked.
15. Avoid playing too much with boys in your school to the extent whereby you allow them to touch most of your body.
16. a boy or a man should not touch your body or private parts intentionally, this could lead to defilement should you allow it to go on for along time or for days.
17. When you want to change clothes at home, especially after bathing ensure that nobody sees your nakedness.
18. Incase a male neighbour sends you to the shop make sure that when you bring the items don’t take for him inside the house, call him and if he doesn’t come leave the
items at the door and go home.
19. If a male visitor comes home and you are alone don’t make a mistake of opening the door, even if he is a family friend, tell him the door is locked and your parents
have gone with the key.
20. If a man or a boy comes home and request for water, make sure you close the door behind you and give him water even through the window.
21. There is a danger of HIV/AIDS, unwanted pregnancies and eminent death therefore you should avoid situations that could lead to rape/defilement.
22. When a man or boy starts seductive signals, praises and giving you gifts anyhowly be careful avoid and say no to all these.

Sociocentric Life - an inspiring short story

It was a Christmas day - whole day it was drizzling filled with cold. Police inspector Tom was on regular rounds watching the city. At around 5.30 in the evening Tom came across a park which was empty - as most of the people were celebrating Christmas. He noticed one person who was sitting on a bench and had a suspicion what is this guy doing here without enjoying Christmas. When he approached towards him , he noticed the Guy was crying , slowly stood up , picked up a pistol from his pocket and was attempting a suicide. Tom immediately jumped on the guy and took off his pistol . The guy still tried to pick the pistol saying "Please leave me . I want to die", but tom managed to get it out of his reach. He consoled the guy and asked him what happened. the guy replied - "I am Jack . I am a businessman, recently i lost my business and now its very difficult at home to serve my family. With what face should I go home and celebrate Christmas" - he started crying sadly.

Tom consoled Jack , took a 20 dollar note from his wallet and tried to give it to him. Jack refused to accept, but still Tom managed to give him. While this happened , Tom received a emergency call on his police phone that - a lady had died , tom has to reach the spot and pick up the body. Tom asked Jack to accompany him and once the work is over he shall drop Jack at his home. Both left to the lady's house. Many people were gathered at the house. She was a black lady , her husband was standing and shivering with  grief , they had 5 small children who were crying looking at the body. On analysis it was found the lady was unable to withstand the poverty and had committed suicide through a water heater electric shock. The bed on which her body was kept was also broken.  When Tom prepared the van to transit the body , children's sorrow reached skies as they hold the grave box. The husband was shell shocked at the incident. 

Jack who was noticing these incidents , went to the husband and try to console him. He took out the 20 dollar note which Tom had given it to him and kept inside the husband's shirt and asked him "Don't worry . God is present . He will help you - please take this and get some food for children". Tom was surprised looking at this and thought how a person who was helpless and attempting a suicide 30 minutes ago is now consoling others and inducing strength words. On the way back home Jack told Tom , "Shit , what a stupid I am. I was thinking my problems were impossible. After seeing the lady's family poverty - my problem is nothing". 

This short story teaches a very nice moral - Till the time we think about us and our problems , it seems like those problems are big and impossible to solve. Once we start seeing the social life around us , we start feeling that the problems we have are acceptable and solvable. When life is self-centric, problem facing may seem unacceptable to the mind, when life is Socio-centric it brings in realization about the problem with sharing and peace to the mind.

Hope you liked the story . If Yes, then spare a minute by sharing the good message to your facebook and google friends.
