Kearoma Rantao stands against child abuse

Kearoma Rantao stands against child abuse

Tuesday is apparently World Children's Day and therefore UNICEF has taken it upon itself to facilitate a conversation about measures parents can take to keep their kids safe. According to one of their posts, the Youth Risk Behavioural & Biological Surveillance Survey reveals that 33% of respondents had sexual intercourse for the first time before age 13 years, which would obviously mean a good third of children are sexually abused.




In a bid to open up the discussion on this, UNICEF will be hosting a Facebook takeover on Tuesday 20th November from 2 PM - 4 PM to discuss the role parents can play in having these difficult conversations with their kids as well as the roles they can play in keeping their kids safe.





Marang Molosiwa will also be a part of the conversation, and so far her and Kearoma have been the only announced speakers, though their posts suggest more will be named. It's interesting to note how there are no men on the panel, so far. Then again, perhaps UNICEF is trying to avoid another embarrassing incident like the last time, when they added Nijel Amos to walk against Gender Based Violence and he was accused of being an abuser himself, a situation they're yet to address.
