Linden joins in observance of Child Protection Week

first_imgThe Linden office of the Childcare and Protection Agency (CPA) joined with other agencies across Guyana on Tuesday in observance of Child Protection Week 2019, with the hosting of an awareness symposium.Child Protection Week is being observed from September 22 to 28 under the theme: “Promoting social change to stop the violation of children”.The symposium, which was held at the Egbert Benjamin Centre, saw representatives from Schools Welfare Department, Blossom Inc – which is responsible for the Child Advocacy Centre— social workers, Police divisions, religious bodies, Toshaos’ Council, and educators in attendance. According to Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) Senior Childcare and Protection Officer (ag) Huette Moore, the aim of the activity is to spread the message that the protection of children is everybody’s business and all need to get involved.“We find children are violated in many different ways in terms of abuse, even in the school setting. So our invitees here today include headmasters and headmistresses from the primary and secondary schools…our message basically is to let people know that Child Protection cannot do this work alone, we need everybody’s participation…We should not abuse our children and if we see children are being abused, we shouldn’t let it go by the wayside,” Moore said.She added that child abuse is a sore issue in Region 10, more so within its riverine areas. Moore explained that presently, there is no Child Protection Officer overseeing communities in these areas and there have been calls for an officer to be placed in the riverine community of Region 10.“Currently, Region 10 only has 2 Child Protection Officers and there’s a lot of work to be done. Nevertheless, we’re trying our best…we’re going to start an outreach next month, going up the river. We’re going to start from Kwakwani…We’re trying to put it out there that Child Protection is here and there’s a place you can go for help. And if we cannot help you, we know where you can go to get help”, she noted.One of the most prominent issues dealt with in the Region, Moore stated, is child neglect, with sexual abuse next in line based on monthly reports. She noted that the Agency also assists in terms of ensuring both parents have access to their children. Moore said one positive improvement seen in the Region is that fathers are taking a more prominent role in being a part of their children’s lives and are fighting for access to their children. She noted that the Agency is proud of this development and encouraged more fathers to play an active role in the lives of their children. Moore further made calls for more collaboration in curbing the issue of child abuse.She further urged anyone who knows of a child being abused to report the issue. She said, regretfully, even in some cases where justice is served, children are left damaged for life. Moore believes that parents, guardians, and adults all need to play an active role and take the responsibility of protecting children as she urged all to step up, support and be a voice for children as well as pay attention to them when they speak. Moore said the Agency is also interested in hosting another symposium within the first quarter of the new year, which would include members of the business sector along with governmental organisations in Region 10.Region 10 recorded the highest rate of child abuse cases in Guyana in 2017, with a 22.1 per cent of the country’s total, with most of the reported cases deriving from Linden. Director of the Childcare and Protection Agency (CPA), Ann Greene just last year during an interview with this publication indicated that the Region also had the highest rate of child neglect and sexual abuse at the time as she noted that child abuse is “a hidden crime”. As such, Greene had made calls for sexual regulation at the family level, as she explained that there is much more work to be done. Other cases, she had indicated, came from riverine areas such as Kwakwani.last_img read more

Paraguay proved too tough for Guyana

first_imgAmericas Rugby Challenge…Guyana Men’s Rugby Team suffered a massive defeat at the hands of their Paraguayan counterparts when they locked horns proverbially in the Americas Rugby Challenge which continued on Wednesday in Medellín, Colombia. Selwyn Henry scored a try and Ryan Gonsalves made good on the conversion, but Paraguay won 86 – 7 and Guyana picked up their second loss in as many games.Gonsalves, the Guyanese captain, believes defence was the common denominator that contributed to the blowout result. According to him, they were too scrappy on second and third phases when defending.He also mentioned that the level of play in Colombia is altogether higher than the local ruggers have to offer, but the locals are not far away.The scrum-half further noted, “The team is very disappointed, and will use the remaining days before our final game against Mexico on Sunday to clean up the errors that cost us, and look for the win.“This is a learning experience for the entire team playing 15s rugby at this level. We can only build from this and adjust to it; work to improve on our weaknesses, and build on our strengths,” he admitted.The final round, slated to be held on Sunday, September 1, will see Mexico clash with Guyana, and Colombia come up against Paraguay as the closing match. The winners will be the team accruing the most tournament points.last_img read more

Balotelli for Dortmund? German giants and Marseille target Super Mario

first_img Mario Balotelli scored 15 goals in Ligue 1 Borussia Dortmund and Marseille are chasing former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, according to his agent.The Italy international could become a free agent at the end of June as he is still refusing to extend his contract with Nice.The 26-year-old has impressed for the French club during his one year there and he ended the previous campaign with 15 goals in Ligue 1.That form has seemingly sparked interest in Balotelli and his agent, Mino Raiola, has revealed Dortmund and Marseille are two of the clubs who could lure his client away from Nice.“Balotelli trusts me,” Raiola told Corriere dello Sport. “His performances at Nice have been positive, though Mario has to give much more because he doesn’t have many more chances.“I am picky and he knows it. Will he remain at Nice? We’ll see. He’s wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.” 1last_img read more

DUBLIN WIN ALL-IRELAND…LEARNING FROM OUR JIM!

first_imgDUBLIN have won the All-Ireland today with a single point win over Kerry – 1-12 to 1-11….and some would say there was more than a hint of Donegal’s tactics.The Dubs smothered the Kerry attack throughout the first half, though the Kingdom came out and made their superior possession pay.But with eight minutes left, Dublin came flying back despite being four points behind. It gives Donegal hope for the future.And if Jim McGuinness can add the attacking finish to the incredible defensive game he had developed, Donegal can follow in the Dublin footsteps.Goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton converted a winning free in stoppage time to give Dublin their first All-Ireland Senior Football Championship title since 1995.DUBLIN WIN ALL-IRELAND…LEARNING FROM OUR JIM! was last modified: September 18th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Conquerors to get big test in Spartans

first_imgLA VERNE — It was no secret this week around Los Altos High School that tonight’s football game against Damien is serious business. The Conquerors think they’re improved compared to last year, but whether the program is back to the lofty heights it established earlier this decade remains to be seen. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Conquerors coach Greg Gano, although impressed by those results, is not exactly worried. “If we come to play, it’s going to be a great game,” he said. “We’re not going to be scared of them, I’ll tell you that much. “I am not going to sell my kids short. I am not going to say we’re going to go over there and get blown out. The thing about Los Altos teams is we’re going to come hit you. We don’t care who you are.” The Conquerors defeated Damien in the first game of last season, and despite the Spartans showing signs of major improvement since then, Gano believes similar results are possible. “They’re better and so are we,” Gano said. “This is going to be a test to see where we’re at. We’re all over the Tribune right now, but we’re going to see how good we are on Friday. We’re going to find out how good Chapelle Brown and the rest of the gang are.” Bottom line: Perhaps we spoke too soon in dubbing last week’s matchup between Bishop Amat and Glendora the nonleague game of the year. This one is pretty darn big, too. Damien has started the season with a vengeance and has eased concerns about last year’s 2-8 campaign. The sick thing is that the Spartans didn’t fire their best game against Charter Oak and won, 26-0. Los Altos also has two quality wins to start the year and this Conquerors team has reportedly been all business as it approaches tonight’s game. Damien has the size advantage tonight while Los Altos has the speed. But the Spartans aren’t exactly slow, though, and the Conquerors are generally one of the more physical teams around. This game is what it is — a matchup between two of the top local teams. You just know Gano and Los Altos relish the chance to beat upper-division schools. But if the Conquerors win, will it really be an upset?
