Education dans la vie de la jeune Fille

Dans nos societés les filles à l"âge de 12 ans ont commencées à pratiquer la prostitution suite aux influences des organes qui s'augmente sur leurs corps. Pendant que la bible nous dit que notre corps est le temple de Dieu et que nous devons le protéger contre toutes sorte de marginalisation, Mais aujourd'hui les jeunes filles l'utilise comme marchcandises et ses laisses exploiter par les hommes. Aussi, l'influence des Habis que nous portons, ça nous conduisent directement dans l'influence de nous exposer devant n'importe qui. s'il arrivait une fois de distinguer les rôles de chaque habis et definir le temps et le lien pour chaque vêtements; ça nous arrangerais quelques part pour bien mener l'éducation dans nos société.
Mme Anuarite.

Education in a young girl’s life

In our society, some girls aged 12 have already begun to work in prostitution. This is because of the increasing hormones in their bodies. And while the Bible says that our body is God’s temple and that we must keep it from any kind of marginalization, today young girls treat it as merchandise and let themselves be exploited by men. Also, the clothes we wear have an influence on us: they lead us to expose ourselves to any and everyone. It would be ideal to establish a certain set time and place for different types of clothing, and this would improve education in our society.

La Prostitution

Cela me fais plaisir de vous lire, quoique le sujet soit très triste et grave. Il est important de parler de la marginalisation de la femme dans votre société ou dans n'importe quelle société qui commence dès le bas âge. Par contre je pense que dans votre récit il serait marquant de parler des raisons économiques,sociales, qui peuvent contribuer a la prostitution des filles. Il y a-t-il dans la société des choix qui pourront ralentir la prostitution des filles? Selon vous est-il la faute des vêtements, une faille de la société au niveau d'opportunité pour les femmes qui les poussent a se prostituées? Il y a-t-il aussi un manque de femmes qui font partie de la société économique pour inspirer les filles? Quand est-il du rôle des hommes dans la prostitution de filles et la marginalisation des femmes? SI vous élaborez un peu ce récit il pourra apporter un changement et vous donnerez une voix aux filles prostituées qui n'ont pas d'autres choix. J'espère relire votre point de vue sur ce problème et sur le rôle des hommes et des femmes Congolais a franchir le seuil vers une élimination de celui-ci.

Merci,

Pénina

Great work! Are there any

Great work! Are there any other solutions besides changing what women wear? Perhaps educating women on other types of professions? or learning workforce skills? That way they wouldn't be relying on their bodies for income but rather their mind. I love the line, "we must keep it (the body) from any kind of marginalization." I completely agree! Keep up the good work.

Education is Key

It is really sad to hear that young girls, little girls are resorting to prostitution. I have read that in some cases it is because they are lured into it, or because they need to make money to survive. I agree that education is a way of preventing this. We can education young girls about the value of their bodies and promoting self-esteem, but also educating them so they have a skill set so they can earn money using their brains. I also think it is also about society and allowing men to exploit little girls. We need to educate society that it is not okay to do this. Keep up the good work. It is important that you keep talking about it. You are taking the first steps to educating socieyt.

Thank You

Merci! Thank you for your contribution. It is sad to read of girls so young but I know it is a problem all over the world-even the US. I agree with the other comments that education is the key and that there are myriad reasos why this situation occurs.
I am glad that this issue is being discussed here and look forward to reading more about it from you and learning what is being done now to combat this. I hope that we can all work together to increase awareness.
