The debate always ends with the phrase, "its like comparing apples and oranges."
Are we truly that a far apart? ZBTR Open Forum will explore with Yareka and the ZBTR team

Esther Madudu, 32, is an AMREF-trained midwife employed by the Government of Uganda. Esther is the face of the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign. She is a committed, passionate, enthusiastic woman. Working in a very remote health facility, Esther symbolises midwives who work under conditions such as and worse than hers. She has been working for almost 12 years starting off at a maternity home in Kumi District, Eastern Uganda before joining Kumi District Hospital.
Esther currently works at Tiriri Health Center IV in Katine District where she has worked for close to four years. The health centre, located just outside Tiriri trading centre in Katine, is the main facility for seven sub-counties that make up Soroti County. The health centre is a mini hospital which has 34 beds and sees up to 100 outpatients a day, including referrals.
There are two midwives at the health centre, two clinical officers and two medical doctors. The midwives duties include prenatal services among them examination of mothers, counselling of HIV-positive mothers, nutritional education, teaching mothers how to prevent the transmission of HIV to their children; maternity services, including delivery; and postnatal care. Besides all the other duties, the midwives deliver 45 to 50 babies every month.

Born in Sidi Kacem Morocco, Najat Anwar received a Master degree in Islamic Law from the historical University of Fez. Even though Mrs. Anwar was enjoying a successful career in Business, her life would be suddenly and forever altered. In 2003, a shameful scandal erupted in Morocco taking the entire country by storm. Sadly, two young children were identified as victims of dreadful sexual abuses by a child molester. To add insult to injury, the pedophile who was found guilty of these heinous crimes only served a two years sentence. Filled with disgust and outrage, Najat Anwar realized then that in order to protect the children of Morocco, a critical fight against pedophilia, child sexual abuse, incest, and sex tourism had to be undertaken. Consequently, Najat Anwar eagerly founded in 2004 "Touche Pas Á Mon Enfant" or "Hands Off My Child", a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against pedophilia, and child molestation. "Hands Of My Child" provides medical, psychological, and legal support to not only children who have suffered from such shameful cruelties, but to their parents as well. By the same token, Najat Anwar is presently advocating the complete reassessment and drastic revision of the far too lenient Moroccan laws regarding pedophilia and child abuse. Thanks to this courageous and heroic woman, the taboo around child sexual abuse and pedophilia in Morocco has been broken. Najat Anwar continues to dedicate her entire life to the protection of children, by promoting both their safety and human rights. Founder and president of "Touche Pas Á Mon Enfant", Najat Anwar remains committed to raise the level of public awareness regarding pedophilia and its negative effects on children today. Proud mother of three, Mrs. Anwar strongly militates for the establishment of adequate sentences against pedophiles and sex offenders.
