The RINJ Foundation is an international membership-driven NGO with numerous operational service units purpose-built and managed to achieve its goal (see about) to protect children & their families from violence. The RINJ Foundation began with the mantra "RapeIsNoJoke" as a women's group campaign opposed to gender-based violence (rape) & expanded at a furious rate of growth.
Read more about who we are and what we do in our "about RINJ" section.
RSAC (RINJ Sexual Assault Clinics) are Nurse-led sexual assault clinics medically treating rape survivors in combat zones and sexual violence survivors in refugee camps Asia and Africa. RSACs in combat zones or refugee camps also perform rape kits and investigate & report the occurance of gender-based violence & sexual violence in war zones. New locations are planned. Read more about rape as a war crime.
Free medical care in The Rinj Foundation Remote Health Care Clinics (TRF-RHC) is planned for women and children in areas of dire need around the world. Narrow specialty RINJ Sexual Assault Clinics (RSAC) work well in major cities as out-of-sight treatment clinics existing for the purpose of caring for survivors and performing forensic evidence collection for police and court services. In many developing nations of the world this concept does not work for cultural reasons. The RINJ Foundation found it extraordinarily effective to provide basic health care in regions of armed conflict and refugee camps. Caring for survivors of rape as a war crime (Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court) has become a significant operational unit of The RINJ Foundation. Learn more about RSAC Nurses Without Borders.
Community related services such as victim advocacy, crisis hotlines, community outreach, & extensive public health education programs are provided based on each RSAC's resources at the discretion of the local RSAC nurse-led team. Learn more about this operational unit in the context of actual projects like Sinjar and Rojava.

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Survivor reconstruction clinic.The RINJ Foundation is planning the integration of a major surgery (general anesthetic, over-night stay) clinic within one of its RSAC facilities, hoping to complete the project in or before 2017. Surgery will reverse some damage and mitigate the FGM side effects in most cases.
Rape Kits are for a nurse or doctor to gather forensic data about sexual violence crime in a clinic or hospital examining room. RINJ manufactures its own rape kits in the Philippines. 'Rape kits' are also described around the world as physical evidence recovery kits [PERK]; sexual offence evidence collection [SOEC] kits).
RINJ shares learning for the betterment of court processes; provides data to the public about 'wanted' sex offenders/suspects or recently released-from-prison rapists who may be of interest to the community; encourages a more diligent execution of duty by law enforcement investigating sexual violence complaints; educates the public on the latest occurances and approaches to minimizing sexual violence crimes; and plays a role in overseeing how survivors in war-torn countries find remedy.
War-Crime The RINJ Foundation NGO workers investigate and catalog crimes of rape in war zones. We send out a message that rape is no longer a trophy of war but a serious war crime that will be prosecuted as a crime against humanity.
"End child sex trade | Don't buy a kid", is the mantra of The RINJ Foundation's international campaign against child sex trade. Educating for better safety of children; education of governments for better laws; and by leveraging existing law enforcement with evidence & crime cataloguing evidence the RINJ Foundation seeks to minimize & eventually end child sex trade.

16-Year-old persons of sound mind can reasonably be expected to decide well what happens to their bodies.
The State has a higher burden of responsibility for education than legislating their married constituents' bedrooms.
Deciding an age of consent needs a balance somewhere between 'informed consent of a sufficiently mature individual' and the 'rights of the individual'.
Looking at the extremes in age of consent.
The ages of 12/13 are (i.e.: Korea, Paraguay, Philippines, Malta) extremely dangerous. This immature age is a borderline child-bearing age where pregnancy would likely kill child and baby in a significant percentile of the population. Informed consent seems impossible and puberty may not have been attained at this age. The State has a significant burden of responsibility to help parents protect children and fails on that burden when encouraging sex with such young children.
The imposed age of consent of 18 to 21 is pretentious, draconian patriarchal law with one purpose only: oppressing young women. Lawmakers of these laws intend to make young women the chattels of the state or the family and community.
Sixteen years of age should be the age of consent globally and that would apply to any person no matter who they have sex with. Defining age of consent on the basis of same versus opposite sex coupling is another violation of the rights of the individual.
