Haiti Earthquake Recovery is Not Protecting Girls

http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/08/30/haiti-earthquake-recovery-failing-women-and-girls

In Haiti, the earthquake relief is not helping young girls with enough support and food needed. Some girls  in Haiti are forced to have sex for food. They're also facing gaps in healthcare which is allowing for maternal and infant deaths. As well, the camp conditions create easy sexual violence against the girls. Should girls in Haiti be put in this condition? In what ways can we help these girls?

These girls are abused by their employers and paid very little. How do you feel about these young girls being exploited? What can be done to stop this in India and many other countries?

In India, many schools are being sabotaged and put at risks. This is so as Armed Militants are targeting the state-run schools. Also government armed forces are occupying the state-run school making the schools and district areas even more of a threat to the community. Do you think it is right for the armies to be in schools?

Vietnam children Left in Prison

In Vietnam, children are being imprisoned. The government is campaigning to clear the streets of the many wandering and lone children in Hanoi. The way they are dealing with these young children is by placing them in prisons leaving them to be abused, neglected and sexually assaulted. Any other options for keeping the children out of the streets?
