April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month


At Zandoli and Caribbean Committee Against Sex Crimes, we support safety education for sexual assault awareness.  For the month of April, we will share materials relating to prevention and learning materials from our resource network.

We read through STOP IT NOW’s TIP SHEET: Everyday Actions to Keep Kids Safe and provided a basic summary for families.  This tip sheet is not just for victims, but for all family members to promote prevention.  Talking with your family and children educates them and like the old adage goes “Prevention is better than cure.”  That simply means that it is easier to prevent something than having to undo the pain and trauma of having to “fix” or “heal”.

Determine clear boundaries and guidelines.

    • All family members have a right to privacy when dressing, bathing, sleeping, etc… without being watched, touched or violated in uncomfortable ways.
    • If the child does not feel like kissing a relative, even it’s Grandma, allow the child to shake hands, respecting the child’s body.
      • Watch for inappropriate behavior in adults or older children.
        • Practice speaking about awkward things and saying uncomfortable or embarrassing words out loud and confronting those behaviors.
        • Report anything you suspect as sexual abuse.
          • Respect their privacy when they say “NO!” to touch that they are not happy with.

          Be prepared.

            • Have a safety plan
            • Make a list of people to report abuse or signs of abuse to

            Zandoli hosts NO-CODE Hackathon: Competitive Intelligence Hackathon 2017


            Our no-code hackathon is open to persons from all backgrounds to benefit from and contribute in analytical ways.

            We invite experts in their fields to discuss trends and competition in their industries. These range from fashion to tech and even bridge philanthropy and social action. Not everyone is a data scientist and we’ve found that analytical minds and super-code skills are not always found together within the same human. Some people are natural analysts with prodigious intuitions that the math wizards and programming superheroes lack. On the other hand, brilliant foresight and world-renowned creative strategies cannot fulfill the requirements for streamlined algorithms and interactive, high-level visualizations. We allow them to come together to build upon each “hack” with expressions from several genres/outlets.

            The hackathon is hosted online and is scheduled for Sunday, April 23rd from 2PM-5PM Eastern Standard Time.  The event boasts “invite only”; however specific requests can be made for individuals wishing to present who have not been on the initial list.  For consideration, if you have not yet received an invitation, please contact info@zandoli.org.


            Our Competitive Intelligence Hackathon is the gathering of data on relevant industry dynamics through the environmental scanning process. This exclusive event is “invite only” and we are inviting experts in their fields to discuss gaps in the market and creative ways they can make contributions. If you received a special invitation to this hackathon, please prepare a 10-15 minute presentation on your subject matter. The webinar platform will be equipped to play youtube videos, slide-shows, and documents in pdf, ppt and docx format. For security reasons for high-profile invitees, the guest list will not be available publicly. All presentations are due Sunday, April 16th for consideration.

            Your ‘Presentation Outline’ should follow these guidelines:

            Brief intro of industry
            Market gaps
            Competitor Analysis
            Trends Analysis

            The following areas are open for invites for presenters:

            Public Policy
            Martial Arts
            Social Action

            Each invitee is allowed up to 3 invites for additional presenters.

            ***If your specialization is not listed but you would like to present on a topic, please message the host with your request for consideration. (Special invite not required)***

            Zandoli Africa: Tensions rise in Congo as militant groups kill police and civilians

            The Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the resource-richest nations in the world, has been under militant attack in recent months.  As reported by Al Jazeera News, the Kamwina Nsapu militia killed 40 policemen by decapitating them on Saturday, sparing 6 others who spoke their native language.

            The French government condemned the acts of violence in DRC and called for immediate action in a statement on their website.

            The United Nations indicates that the group has killed over 400 people since August 2016.  10 mass graves were found in the crisis-torn region of Kasai.  Kasai is just a two-hour flight from Kinshasa, DRC’s capital city and metropolis.  The UN states that there are close to 19,000 troops deployed in Congo, with 100 in Kasai.
