Introduction. Manuela went to Nabikenge village to teach about importance of abstinence and also the causes and dangers of abortion. This lesson is aimed at educating community members to understand that staying away from sex is very good especially for the young boys and girls, and even the dangers of abortion , this lesson is also aimed at encouraging parents to talk to their children about the dangers of early sex so that they can abstain and be free from that problem of abortion. Overview When Manuela reached the village, she found the on a mess, one man by the name Issabiry Samuel was beating her daughter seriously simply because she was found with a brand new phone suspected to be given to her by a boy friend, also that night this girl did not sleep in the house but the father investigated, he found her hanging out with some two boys whom he suspected she might have spent the night with. While this man was beating the daughter, some people where trying to rescue the girl but the father was so Wilde and he was beating anybody who was coming to rescue this girl, but Manuela decided to go and rescue this girl and immediately Manuela removed the girl away from the sin to someone home in that village, she took the girl allowed her to rest and come down, she talked to her and asked her about all the incident, this girl was able to tell Manuela everything and she said she want to ask for forgiveness before her parents so that they can for give her, after that Manuela also talked to the parents of the girl too. Manuela encouraged the parents to come down and settle the matter as family, she went on and told them that beating is not a solution to such cases actually they should learn to approach such matter than taking the law in their hands. She even asked him what if you beat your daughter to death you would have caused problems to your self and your family at large, Manuela told him you would have called this girl seat her down and asked and she will tell the truth. Then she told him that next time don’t do it. While Manuela was still talking to the parents of this girl, the news reached the family members of the boy who is confusing the young girl, your son has been arrested and held in someone home, immediately they came in large groups ready to fight, Manuela decided to call the chairman but he was not around even the vice too, there was the defense around Manuela went on told him to call the police to come and settle down the situation on the ground.
