justice is
nowhere
for
child rape
victims.

KENYA

A CHILD IS RAPED EVERY 30 MINUTES,
INCLUDING SOME AS YOUNG AS
EIGHTEEN MONTHS OLD.

BELIEFS

THIS IS PARTLY BECAUSE MEN BELIEVE
THAT HAVING SEX WITH A YOUNG GIRL
WILL CURE THEM OF H.I.V. AND AIDS.

FAMILY

THESE girls ARE DEFILED BY THEIR GRANDFATHERS,
NEIGHBORS AND TEACHERS. THE VERY SAME
PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEM.

CHILDHOOD

GIRLS WHO DON'T DIE FROM INJURY, FACE
UNWANTED PREGNANCY, CONTRACTING H.I.V.
or FAMILY ABANDONMENT.

POLICE

WHEN THEY TURN TO THE POLICE FOR HELP,
THEY ARE NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
SOME ARE SEXUALLY ABUSED IN RESPONSE.

160 GIRLS

160 BRAVE GIRLS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 3
AND 17 FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST THEIR
GOVERNMENT FOR FAILING TO PROTECT THEM.

HIGH COURTS

ON MAY 27, 2013, THE GIRLS WON THEIR CASE.
NOW, POLICE MUST INVESTIGATE THEIR RAPE CLAIMS.
AND CONVICTED RAPISTS WILL FACE JAIL.
