ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Heart filled thanks goes to God, who has given me inspiration and ability to work on this Social Studies School Based Assessment (S.B.A.). Thanks to my family for support, encourage and for allowing me to take time from my duties at home, to work on this project. I am very grateful, thank you. Last but by no means least, sincere gratitude to my teacher, Mr. Feron who did his best to explain and guide me through the task and also Mrs. Todd.

Reason for Selecting Area of Research

Cumbano is a small community in the St. Catherine. It is located in the vicinity of the Great Rio Cobre River, St. Catherine. I have been a resident of Cumbano for the pat sixteen years. During this time I have seen a significant amount of physical abuse cases being portrayed regarding the women in the community. No one really pays attention to this because they are keen about their own responsibilities and not those of others. It has a negative stigma on the community because many single women who wish to reside in Cumbano are scared that they will receive the same treatment that the women in the community undergo so they dismiss the idea. I have become disgusted and annoyed of the attitudes of the residents in the community because they seem not to care about what is happening to the women in the community. I have therefore decided to conduct a survey to investigate the views of the resident towards some s of the factors which may account for the causes, effects and solution of physical abuse regarding women in Cumbano.

REASON FOR STUDY/ RATIONALE

The reason this topic was selected is because many women in Cumbano are continuously being physical abused and it needs to stop.
