Karate Against Rape – level 1

09-01-2017 15:00

There is war in Myanmar. People die. People are displaced. Women are raped.

There is a camp in Myanmar. People without homes are in this camp. They have no families. The camp is not completely safe. If the Myanmar Army comes, the men can rape the girls.

An organisation wants to help the girls. They organise karate lessons for them. The girls train every day. When they get in danger, they can fight back.

Difficult words: displaced (when people leave their homes because of a bad situation), rape (when a person makes another person have sex when he or she does not want to).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
