Prevent Violence Against Women By Helping The Boys

Carmen Calderon, Canada

I would use the $1000 USD to help Casa Alianza prevent violence against girls & women in Nicaragua. Nicaragua has the second highest rate of domestic violence in Latin America (after Guatemala), with one in three women reporting physical abuse. The rate of femicide crimes is alarmingly increasing and we need to do something about it. I have been very fortunate to have been raised in Canada were women are raised to be given so much. I believe to be able to help our sisters we need to start with the boys. Teach boys the value of women. I want girls in Nicaragua not to feel less, I want them to know that being a women is awesome. Help me help these boys become gentlemen and girls become all they can be.
