Karate Against Rape – level 2

09-01-2017 15:00

There is war in Myanmar in which many people die, are displaced and raped. The Myanmar Army uses rape as a weapon against its enemies.

An organisation arranged karate lessons at a camp for the internally displaced. These girls lost their homes and families and now are learning to protect themselves against rape.

Difficult words: displaced (when you must leave your home because of a bad situation), rape (have sex with a person when he or she does not want to), internally displaced (when you are displaced but still in your country).

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