–    Thousands sensitized under MHSS Tell Scheme initiative Approximately 10,000 children have directly benefitted from the Tell Scheme,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, a sensitization programme, which was developed by the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security (MHSS) to tackle the issue of sexually abused children.The Tell Scheme was launched two years ago, under the Ministry of Human Services as a method of empowering children to disclose any form of sexual abuse perpetrated against them.Teaching material used in the CampaignThe programme was intended to target primary school children and to raise public awareness in an effort to bring about support for the Sexual Offences Act. The Tell Scheme includes the direct participation of children parents, teachers and social workers.  The initiative is a collaborative effort between the MHSSS and the United Nations Children Fund, UNICEF.According to a commentary released by MHSS,NFL Jerseys 2018, to date 552 teacher and 333 parents were trained to use the stimulus which resulted in approximately 10,000 children being sensitized on how they could protect themselves from perpetrators of sexual offences.The figures are from an altogether target 540 teachers, 540 PTA representatives,Wholesale Jerseys Online, and 10,800 children.The MHSS has reported that during the two-year period Tell Scheme advertisements have been broadcast on five local television stations, as well as two local radio stations all in an effort to make the public aware of the tell scheme stimulus and sensitize children who are not yet exposed to the information on sexual abuse.Evaluation on the progress of the initiative showed that of 100 schools visited almost 95 per cent had implemented methods of the campaign.As a result of the Tell Campaign approximately 50 children have disclosed/reported alleged sexual abuse. Of these, 11 cases involved inappropriate touching of children’s private area by adults as well as classmates.The MHSS reports states while six cases were dealt with by Headteachers; others were reported to the Police and Schools’ Welfare officers.The project has exceeded its target as training exercises were conducted at 180 schools over two years. A total of 273 schools have been trained from Regions Two, Three, Four,NFL Jerseys China, Seven and Ten, a majority of schools in Region Nine and some in Region Eight.In addition,Cheap Jerseys China, Tell Scheme facilitators have trained 11 members (four females and seven males) from the Community Policing group in Alberttown,Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, North Sophia and North Ruimveldt on the sexual offences law as well as signs and behaviors that they may observe in their respective communities while doing their jobs.However the implementation of such a project is not without its challenges. The MHSS has listed poor documentation and record keeping of reported cases of abuse in schools and the implementation process of the scheme in the classrooms as a main challenge.“Some schools are not following the reporting structure though this was a critical part of the training. These schools called in the parents to discuss or settle the matter before reporting it to the relevant authorities and in some cases without involving them…“There are no specifically assigned Child Protection Officers to handle the reported cases of abuse.”“This affects the accuracy of the number of reported cases or disclosure made as a result of the Tell Campaign and the following through on reported cases.“The Regional Education Officers, under the Ministry of Education have not successfully mobilized teachers from all of the schools identified for the training.”There were also issues of high transportation cost in the hinterland and therefore only the head teacher and one PTA executive member were invited to the training sessions instead of three teachers and three PTA representative from each school.In some cases no PTA representative was invited.In other instances, continuous interventions by Schools’ Welfare Officers and Child Protection Officers with children who have been abused from remote regions were prevented.However training for the remaining schools in Regions Eight and Nine will be completed in the first quarter of 2014, and during the remainder of the year the schools in Regions One, Five and Six will receive the training to make the initiative a national campaign to stop sexual violence against children.Schools in the other regions will be trained in intervention and prevention of sexual abuse under another overseas grant.
