We all understand that Child Abuse is an issue all around the world, and Pakistan is one of those countries where Child Abuse has taken it's rise in recent years. More than 70,000 cases on Child Abuse in Pakistan were only reported in 2015, and many more cases are still being reported today. With such an existent issue, it becomes more than important to address the urgency of it.
And this is just what the PEP Theater Group has presented in thier first ever play. ThePEP theater on Child Abuse addresses the most common yet threatening issue that has taken place several times in the past, and rarely has ever been reported due to shame and fear of disgrace.
In the marginalized communites of rural Sindh, people more than often face challenges that take away not only their freedom, but chains them to oppression by the Landlords and strict taboo traditions. These challenges come in face of early marriage, bonded labor, depriviation of education and child rights, especially for girls, and poverty.
The PEP Theater Group has given it's best to show how children in rural Sindh respond to child abuse and the results of that response. Further the Theater Group has brilliantly posed a question as to what should be the solution when one is faced with such a plight.
Watch for yourself and Join us in this ever engaging campaign to promote Child Protection in rural Sindh Pakistan, and all around the world.
