Women in Gaza take aim at domestic violence

I´ve chosen an article about domestic violence against women in Gaza.
The article says, that there are still over 30% in the Gaza Strip that are exposed to (pysical) abuse in their homes, while there are 15% exposed to sexual abuse and nearly 75% exposed to pschological abuse, too.
The main reason for this - according to the report - is that, while the Israeli blockade halted imports and has cut jobs, the Gazan families have to survive with even less than before, which in the end effects in an increase in domestic violence.

The WAC (Women´s Affairs Centre) and UNRWA’s Gender Initiative have already launched groups, forums and workshops to talk about the issue - in the families itself and in the wh*** communityy, too.

There is a project from UNRWA which assits women facing domestic violence and can be found here:

Photos doc**enting womens life in the Gaza Strip can be found here:

Even if the task is about women´s rights and opportunities worldwide I think it is important to mention (at least for the story I´ve told above) that there are also men facing domestic violence, too, so everybody should care about that problem, because I think nobody (and I mean really nobody) should fear violence from others at home, but should feel secure within her/his family, cause sadly for some people their family is all they have in life, so these people should at least be able to rely on their family members and not fear them.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
