This risk is heightened during disaster giving appeals.According to the research, 75% of donors feel charities do not communicate well about how their regular donations are used.The research is based on 1,045 employee donors from 59 companies that operate a CAF Australia’s Workplace Payroll Giving programme. It was conducted following the string of natural disasters this year to find out why people give during disasters and/or why they give on a regular basis at other times.The survey found that 91% of respondents had given to a disaster appeal in the past two years via their CAF Workplace Payroll Giving programme. However, 75% of those donors said that they were unhappy with the lack of information charities provide back on how and when those donations are being used.Average donations for these disaster appeals rose to $150 against the average donation through Workplace Payroll Giving of around $60 a month from each donor.Don Willesee, Chief Executive of CAF Australia said: “Employees who give through Workplace Payroll Giving are a valuable group of donors who provide vital regular income for many charities. However, many feel they are being ignored by the charities they give to.“Charities need to treat and inform these very loyal donors who give in this way as ‘VIP donors’ and ensure they get the feedback and communication that is right for them.”The research confirmed that Australians continue to be willing and supportive donors. However, many charities could achieve more by being more transparent, for example by communicating administration costs and timelines for appeal efforts and demonstrating the impact of donations through success stories and the scale of their AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis CAF Australia research finds charities ignoring high value donors Howard Lake | 22 July 2011 | Newslast_img read more

Priyanka Chopra Meets Child Survivors Of Sexual Violence In Zimbabwe

first_imgUNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra has called for increased awareness and support for child victims of sexual violence.Priyanka Chopra speaks with child survivors of sexual violence at the Family Support Clinic in Chitungwiza town north of Harare, ZimbabweThe actress made an emotional visit to Zimbabwe this week, where she met child survivors of sexual violence and heard their harrowing stories.“When I met these survivors, young brave women and children, and listened to their experiences, it just broke my heart,” said Chopra. “I will never forget their stories.”Chopra’s first stop was in Chitungwiza, south of Harare, Zimbabwe, where she met 13-year-old Alice who was repeatedly raped by an uncle and threatened if she revealed the abuse.“Alice told me how she had regular abdominal pains, she was 11 at the time, but her mother was unaware there was something wrong,” said Chopra. “It was only when a relative saw condoms in her bedroom, and realized she was sexually active, that the truth came out and by then she was pregnant. Alice disclosed that her uncle had raped her several times between January and February this year.”“At first, she could not believe that her own relative, who she trusted so much, could do this to her. She felt powerless and betrayed.”With the help of her mother and neighbours, the incident was reported to the police. Alice was referred to Family Support Trust, supported by UNICEF, which runs a “one stop” child-friendly clinic providing medical and psychosocial support for sexually abused children. She also attended a peer support group for teens, and received regular home visits from social workers to provide the help and support she needed.The uncle was arrested, tried, and jailed for 10 years.“Sadly, Alice’s story was just one of too many stories I heard from brave young girls during my visit to Zimbabwe. No woman, and most definitely no child, should ever have to experience sexual violence – especially from someone they trust for protection, such as a family member,” said Chopra, who has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since December 2016 and a UNICEF India Ambassador for 10 years.Poverty and a lack of opportunity are huge drivers of violence and leave young women and children in a position of vulnerability to predators. Additionally, most abuse occurs in situations when a child knows and trusts the adult who abuses him or her.“As a society, it is on us to provide and take care of our children as citizens of the world, to educate children at a young age that it’s not OK to be inappropriately touched and that under-age sex can lead to unwanted teen pregnancy or HIV,” said Chopra.On the second day of her visit, Chopra visited Childline Zimbabwe, the country’s 24-hour service for children who have been abused, violated or exploited. As well as providing free, confidential, multilingual counselling to children aged 18 years and under, Childline also offers 25 community based drop in centers throughout the country.Her first stop was a Childline drop-in center in Epworth, where she met survivors of sexual violence who shared their stories. Chopra then visited the Childline call-in center to meet the Helpline counsellors and listen to some of the calls being fielded in real-time.“I was astonished by the number of calls that were coming in during the brief time I was there,” said Chopra. “The counsellors, all volunteers, told me that many calls come from children in hysterics because they had been raped or abused. They were so scared. Without Childline, they would have nowhere to turn. This is a model that many countries with high rates of violence against children can adopt, because it is a safe place for children to turn to and know that their call will be answered by a compassionate person who will take their complaints seriously and respond.”In 2016, 3,690 reports of sexual abuse were received by Childline. The children were assisted to receive counselling, medical assistance, and justice through prosecution of the offenders.Sexual violence against children is widespread in Zimbabwe. Latest available data shows that close to 1 in 10 girls aged 15-17 years old has been a victim of forced sexual intercourse or a forced sexual act. Approximately 2 in 3 victims were first abused by an intimate partner and approximately 1 in 10 by a stranger.Too often, sexual violence occurs in homes and is often committed by an individual known to or trusted by the child. Sexual violence against children is therefore mostly invisible and goes largely undocumented. Fear of getting into trouble or not wanting to land the offender in trouble, as well as shame and stigma all contribute to children not reporting the abuse. Additionally, many victims are too young or too vulnerable to know what happened to them.One survey carried out in Zimbabwe found that 30 per cent of girls aged between 15-17 years who experienced sexual violence never sought help or told anyone.last_img read more

Jolt to BJP in HP 3time former MP joins Cong

first_imgShimla: In a major jolt to the ruling BJP, three-time BJP MP from Hamirpur Suresh Chandel on Monday joined the Congress.His decision to join the Congress despite having been denied the ticket to contest against Anurag Thakur, also a third-time MP has surprised many in the BJP circle. His presence in the Congress campaign will be the biggest selling point for the party in its campaign, not alone Hamirpur but also across the state. Former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal was first to react. ” Anyone leaving the party, especially such juncture is a loss to the party family,” he said. He joined the Congress in presence of Rahul Gandhi, Himachal Congress president Kuldeep Rathore, leader of opposition Mukesh Agnihotri and All India Congress Committee (AICC) in-charge Rajni Patil. Chandel was in constant touch with senior AICC leaders as had spurned the efforts made by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur to stay put in the BJP. The Congress has given the ticket to Ram Lal Thakur, a sitting MLA. Chandel will join his campaign on April 25 when Thakur files nomination.

Our doors are open to all those BJP leaders, who are willing to join us and support the party to win all four seats,” said PCC president Kuldeep Rathore. Asked about his role, Rathore said the party has assured him that he will be given due place in the organisation keeping in view stature, seniority and political relevance. Hailing from Bilaspur town, Chandel had been BJP’s state president and had held several key positions in the party including its organising secretary in 1990-91. Chandel was one of 11 MPs, 10 from the Lok Sabha, who was accused in the ‘Cash-for-question’ sting operation in 2005 and lost his membership of the Lok Sabha.

Yet, I have decided to move putting a bad chapter of my political career behind,” he says. Back in the party’s folds in 2006-2007, Chandel was given a ticket for state assembly in 2012, which he lost and this time, was not considered for the state assembly polls. Knowing that the BJP will re-field Anurag Thakur in Hamirpur, Chandel lobbied in the Congress. It was at the last minute that the party ticket was given to Ram Lal Thakur leaving Chandel high and dry. “Today, I told Rahul Gandhi that ticket was never his priority though it’s fact that I wanted to fight Hamirpur Lok Sabha poll – a constituency I had won three times. Nevertheless, I will work for the Congress whole heartily,” he told the Millennium Post.last_img read more
