Child LinK representative Stacy Parris sensitized 77 Guyana police Force recruits at the Guyana Police Force Training Center, on sexual assault on April 26 2018. This session was conducted in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The recruits were given a brief back ground on Child LinK and then were asked to think about sexual assault and what it means to them. Ms. Parris helped the recruits to tear down the walls of misconceptions surrounding sexual assault. The recruits relayed their gratitude and their determination to take what they have learned into their work and be the front runners in the fight against sexual assault in Guyana.
Sexual assault awareness month is observed annually in the month of April. The theme for this year is ”Embrace your voice”.
