First of all, I'll start by defining rape - Rape is a sexual assault involving sexual intercourse or any form of sexual penetration carried out forcefully against a person without the persons consent. And rape has several effects on its victims ranging from physical effects to emotional and mental effects, which is what I'm going to be emphasising on today.
Bruising/Bleeding(vaginal or anal): As a result of the force used on the victim, the victim tends to end up with bruises all over the body and also end up bleeding through the privates as a result of forceful penetration.
Sexually transmitted infection/diseases: Victims of sexual assault or rape might end up with sexually transmitted diseases due to the unprotected sex.
Pregnancy: Pregnancy may result from rape as a result of unprotected sex.
- Self blame
Depression: A greater percentage of rape victims suffer depression, which usually leads to thinking, sadness, constant crying, weight loss, loneliness and so on. The victim might also suffer eating and sleeping disorder.
Suicide: After being a victim of rape and suffering some of the physical and emotional effects stated above most victims begin to consider suicide and if nothing is being done, they end up committing suicide.
Post-traumatic stress disorder(PTSD): After suffering an event like rape, the victim might not be able to take out the thought of the experience. They begin to have nightmare and flash back of the incident.

Women are essential to the nation because they take care of its children, the children are the future leaders of the nation, if you are familiar with the bible you must have heard of this verse “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he won‟t depart from it”.Girls foundation was founded by a group of selfless ladies, it is a non�governmental organization an d believes in decentralization.

- Rape free society- Rape is a sexual assault carried out against a person forcefully. The rate at which girls are being raped these days is alarming, we are also humans and we deserve respect. Most rape victims suffer from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder, serious injuries and in some cases pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection.
- Fight against domestic violence- it is also known as intimate partner violence, domestic abuse or family violence; it's a form of violence committed in a domestic or family setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. It is called intimate partner violence when committed by a spouse and called family violence when it involves the kids, parents or elders. Domestic violence has several effects on human that's is why girls foundation is picking it up. Effects of domestic violence
1.) Physical effect: This involves bruises round the victim, broken wrists, shortness of breath etc.
2.) Mental effect: This involves PTSD (post-traumatic stress),
pressing, drug abuse, suicidal thoughts etc.
3.) Emotional effect: This involves feeling unworthy, hopeless and not motivated etc.
4.)It affects the development of the kids and they suffer from
depression, anxiety, fear etc
Domestic violence always produces an international cycles of
violence. Funny, only few people see themselves as being abused; considering it as family matter.
- Girl education: Some people still believe that training a female child is a waste of time and money 'cause they feel she'd still end up in the kitchen, well sorry to disappoint you but ladies can do much more than just being house wives, lots of educated women are doing fine in our society today. Every child deserves equal right to education.We don't think anyone should be treated differently because of their gender, we are all one and it's high time we realized that.
The primary aim of the girls foundation is to enlighten youths and increase the awareness of the steem blockchain and steemit. Giving girls the ability to create wealth with their writing skills, without waiting for the government intervention.
