English translation by PulseWire member milsgra

Us young Congolese and children we are suffering, we are traversing a very difficult situation filled with problems, and we are faced with all sorts of problems. We ask that our parents respect our rights and that the Congolese government enforces the respect of our rights. The rights that are violated such as: The lack of guidance, children are left with neighbors, only seeing the father once a week, other instances the father is absent. The fathers don’t know about the problems of their children and that there is a lack of education. Children are abused. The sick kids don’t get proper care because there is no money to waste. Insecurity. To be continued.

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

Hi Joelle

By reading your post I get sad and worry a lot about the situation of children and young people in Congo.

I have lots of questions, but the most important one is: What are the young people like yourself doing to overcome this situation?

Are you ready to take the challenge of changing your world?

Go for it Joelle!

Start your own movement, raise your voice and you will see the change in no time.

Love,

Jackie

The power of the increment

Thank you for communicating what is going on in your area to let the world know what is going on. It is disappointing to hear what woman in your area are going through. I can't imagine what it is like to see this with your own eyes. If you can do one thing to help improve things others will join in. It sounds like with your post that you are planning on taking action. I look forward to hearing the second installment on what you did. Your next action will be one step that will help improve things for the better.

I wish you the best of luck,

Sincerely,
Justin Cambra

Dear Cikwanine,

Thank you for reaching out. To tell a story, by putting it in writing, is the best way to make it real to others and to seek support.

I heartily agree with Justin that a second installment will be an excellent next step. Your voice is more powerful than you may realize, so please continue to speak out!

With Respect,

Interfaith Reverend Sarah, United States
