Tromatisme de filles- mères à l'Est de la RDC

Ici à l'Est de la RDC il y a beaucoup de filles mères qui ne savent pas quoi faire. Il y a ceux qui ont étaient violés à cause des certaines circonstances. Il y a l'utilité d'encadrer les Filles- mères car c'est une population tromatisée compte tenu de sa position dans la société. Cela étant le chois de notre cible se justifierait par l'importance que celle - ci nous permet d'analyser et de proposer des solutions aux problèmes que connaît cette population.

Les Objectif

Reduire le taux d'analphabétisatisme, diminuer le vagabondage sexuel, permettre aux filles- mères des s'intégrer dans la vie sociale comme les autres filles fidélisées de la communauté, faire aussi des travaux de Technique pour améliorer leur condition de vie.
Tout ça c'est dans le cadre d'Education, formation et communication pour auto-prise en charge de cette population de Filles-mère en RDC.

Je remerci da NEEMA qui m'a connecté,pour enveyer des message à tous mes amies

Que le Seigneur vous benisse tous!

Trauma of Teenage Mothers in Eastern DRC

Here in eastern DRC there are many single mothers who do not know what to do. There are those who were violated because of certain circumstances. It is imprtant to frame the teenage mothers situation because it is a population traumatised given its position in society. That is our target and it is justified by the importance of that topic - it allows us to analyze and propose solutions to the problems facing this population.

The Objective

Reduce the rate analphabetisme, reduce promiscuity, allow unwed mothers to integrate into the social life like other girls loyal to the community, as do technical work to improve their living conditions.
It's all in the context of education, training and communication for self-management of this population of girls mother in the DRC.

I thanks NEEMA that connected me to send a message to all my friends

May the Lord bless you all!

Dear ASOKA MUMBALIMA

Dear ASOKA MUMBALIMA Emilie,

I am learning so much through reading yours and other stories on World Pulse. Thank you for posting your story of unwed teenage mothers, and their need to be included in the community and able to work to feed their children. I will be writing our United States State Department and the United Nations to bring more attention to the plight of women and children in Eastern Congo.

Cher ASOKA MUMBALIMA Emilie,

J'apprends tellement de lecture par le vôtre et d'autres histoires sur Pulse mondiale. Merci de poster votre histoire de mères célibataires adolescentes, et leur besoin d'être inclus dans la collectivité et apte à travailler pour nourrir leurs enfants. Je vais écrire à notre département d'État des États-Unis et les Nations Unies d'apporter plus d'attention à la situation des femmes et des enfants dans l'Est du Congo.
