Good evening, my name is Martine.
I work at the SERNIE/ESP in Bukavu, where I manage the fundraising.
I'm married and have five children: two girls and three boys. I really wish my children could study and live in a better environment, but unfortunately the lack of financial mean doesn't allow them to do so.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Hello there, I have taken

Hello there, I have taken long without commenting on Martine's message, I regret that her wishes in regard to education and well-being of her children can hardly be realized. I have searched and learned that Idjwi Island Education Fund is offering education assistance to children in DR Congo in areas which include Bukavu, I invite Martine to visit; www.idjwiislandeducationfund.org for further information. I further advise her to use family planing methods and or birth control measures.

Kind regards

Dear Mweze, first we should be thank full for the blessing of children; for children are a gift from God. I however encourage you not to loose hope, not to give up on the fight; for everything is possible for those that believe.

I encourage you to look out for organization that support education, and to also may be start a small business - however small it may be to supplement on your income so your children can access education.
