LUTTE CONTRE LA PROSTITUTION EN RDC

Pour lutter contre la prostitution en R.D.C, je pense qu'il sera mieux d'organisé les séances de formation pour les femmes et les filles, relever les débat sur le mode d'habillement car ça fait appel à celle- ci, de préférence amener même quelques habits comme matériels didactiques et faire l’exploitation de tout un chacun, en fin qu’elles comprennent le mode d’utilisation de ce dernier.
Ex :
- une femme qui porte l’habit de soirée pendant le mâtiné.
- L’autre porte les habits qu’on se sert pour nager pendant la journée et s’en va avec même au marché, cet habits laisse le corps nu.
Quand la majorité des femmes quitteront dans cette ignorance, on leur montrera maintenant les conséquences de la prostitution, comme nous les savons, dans certains pays il y a des personnes qui se sont données pour faire ce travail, eux ont de badge qui leur servent comme laissé – passé, mais dans notre pays c’est à fait le contre, vous verrez une fille à l’âge de 8 ans qui commence la prostitution et quand on leur prodigue des conseils pour voir s’elle va cesser ; elle te montre que celui qui à déjà couché avec un homme ne peut même pas terminer 2 jours sans qu’elle ne fait ça, car à tout le temps qu’elle pense à ce dernier et directement elle cherche celui qui va lui soulagé. Elles ne pensent pas aux conséquences qui vont en découler ;
Ex : les maladies comme : (la blennorragie, la VIH/ SIDA, etc.)
Comprenez que la création de centre de formation pour les femmes sur l’éducation à la vie est vivement souhaitée.
A la prochaine.

The fight against prostitution in the DRC
To fight against prostitution in the DRC, I think it will be better to organize training sessions for women and girls, take up debates on dressing habits because it is a call for concern, preferably bring some dresses to serve as teaching materials and use each of them so that they understand how to them.
eg
- A woman who wears an evening dress in the morning.
- Others wear swimming clothes to the market; these dresses leave the body naked.
When most women would be out of this ignorance, they will be shown the consequences of prostitution.
As we all know, in certain countries there are people who have given themselves to this work; they have a badge which serves them as a laissez-passer. But it is the contrary, you see girl of 8 years who starts prostitution and when given advice to see whether she will stop, she shows you that one who has started sleeping with men cannot stay for 2 days without doing it because whenever she thinks of it, she immediately looks for someone to relieve her. They don’t think of the consequences which will follow;
Eg diseases such as: (gonorrhea, HIV / AIDS, etc.).
Understand that the creation of a training center for women on life education is highly desirable.

La prostitution

C'est un plaisir de lire une femme qui prend a coeur le problème de toutes les femmes. Selon vous est-il nécessaire de faire l'éducation des femmes au niveau vestimentaires uniquement? Quand est-il de l'éducation sexuelle, familiale, scolaire? quand est-il du rôle des hommes qui participent dans la prostitution? Pourriez-vous relater un exemple de la prostitution qui s'opère dans un niveau local? Connaissez-vous des femmes qui sont dans une telle situation? Pourriez-vous relater une histoire que vous aviez remarquez, constatez ou vécue?

les filles de 8ans dans la prostitution?

Bonjour Anuarita,
Merci pour votre contribution.
C'est dommage que même les enfants de 8 ans se retrouvent dans la prostitution.

Peut être les parents doivent augmenté leur surveillance sur les enfants.

Merci

Hi Anuarite

It cannot be in my mind that a mother can let her 8 year old daughter begin to have sex. It is so important to have that Center that you talk about!

Go for it Anuarite. Make it happen. You will se how you can do it. I know you have the power and the willingness to do it.

Please begin as soon as possible. The universe will provide, because your purpose is filled with love.

In sisterhood,

Jackie

Dear Anuarite, Thank you for

Dear Anuarite,

Thank you for sharing your story. My question is - why do men not have the respect for women and girls? Why do they rape and molest? I don't believe that any girl or women wants to be a prostitute, but usually is forced to, due to economic circumstances. We must education women and girls and help them to become economically self sufficient. Are there any programs like that in your country?

In Peace,
beverly

Prostitution en RDC

Anuarite,

La pauvrete qui fait suite a une guerre civile continue dont personne ne voit la fin, entraine la prostitution des plus jeunes.
Neanmoins, la communaute et le cercle familial ne font plus leur part dans l'education des enfants.
Dans une societe sans repere, la cellule familiale se doit de se regrouper pour sauver la nouvelle generation.

Merci de parler de ce phenomene qui ne touche pas que la RDC.

Peut etre que l'education sexuelle, les valeurs socio-culturelles se doivent d'etre la base de toute societe en crise pour maintenir au moins la cohesion sociale qui sera necessaire pour reconstruire le pays.

Education

You are absolutely right that education is necessary, but not just simply for women and how they dress and conduct themselves, but also on how to work towards becoming economically self sufficient so they are not dependent on prostitution as a path. And the men need to be educated to respect apparently not just women but girls as well. Hopefully this cycle is broken soon and more individuals like yourself continue to take note and speak up about such unfortunate circumstances.

Stay strong and please keep voicing these stories. Awareness is education too!

True

Knowledge is power. It is so sad what these girls experience and if we could change one person's life it's worth it. Stay strong and keep pushing forward. Great writing.

Coach Marcie

Best,
Marcie
