Voices of Change: GFF’s Global Survey Empowering Young Women to Speak Truth to Power
I bet you have seen the BBC documentary on #SexForGrades, or the latest one on #SexForWork. I’m really sorry if you have ever suffered from this kind of sexual exploitation. Or maybe you have been pressured by a Sugar Daddy to do things you didn’t want to do, just so you could afford to stay in college.
If so, you have probably wondered why those men are allowed to get away with it. Why does society think it’s ok? Normal? Or an unavoidable necessary evil? Would you like to see the whole disgusting problem exposed and stopped, once and for all?
There’s an organization called Girls First Finance (GFF) that is trying to do that.
Based on focus groups with students in Kenya and other countries, Girls First Finance, thinks that up to 50% of girls in Africa are sexually exploited by sponsors in exchange for school fees, and up to 90% of girls face pressure from teachers in a “sex for grades” culture.
So it’s a really big problem. Maybe you know lots of friends who have had this problem.
So why is no-one talking about it?
Because the men in power find it easier to keep their dirty little secret, a secret. And pretend its little, instead of really big.
Those in positions of power can get away with ignoring the issue because there aren’t many official or academic studies on it.
So Girls First Finance wants to collect the evidence to expose this issue and permanently end it.
The Girls First Finance survey, which aims to reveal the extent of sexual assault committed by teachers and sponsors, is being requested by GFF from young women and girls throughout Africa. They think that recording these experiences is the first step toward putting an end to this practice, and hopes that the survey will force those in positions of authority to act and make a difference.
