THE CAUSES OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN D R CONGO

Our country deems the DR Congo is the world capital of viols.Chaque days ago a woman who is raped especially al '
Is.
In a workshop that we have done this, women have tried to tell some of the causes of sexual violence are major victimes.Les are
1.the customs is customs
2.The wars a repetition
3.Des religious teachings based on discrimination of women
4.The impunity and paralysis of the judicial
5.The isolation
6.The ignorance of women rights and duties
7.La poverty of women.
8.La unschooling women compared to men
9.The stakeholders in the fight against sexual violence are theorists and practitioners
10.Manque policy monitoring NGOs involved in the fight against sexual violence.
Whatever the large number of NGOs that fight against this crime, we note with regret the rapes continue to increase.
We also cases of sexual violence reported to us by our focal points remote villages.
With the school year, teachers and university professors carve their penis to give points to girls sexually transmitted their classes in exchange for school issues.
We have a great responsibility to report such crimes.

Ma vision

Bonjour
Merci pour votre commentaire,je voudrais en plus vous partager ma vision
Je suis fondatrice d'une organisation de défense des droits humains et de développement renomme "NGABO" qui signifie Bouclier en langues locales.
Ma vision est de défendre le droit des vulnérables femmes et enfants.Je suis convaincue que le développement du Congo et du monde doit se fonder sur des relations paritaires ,équilibrées entre l'homme et la femme
Mon programme principale est basé sur la vulgarisation des lois et conventions internationales portant sur les droits des femmes et des enfants.La violation des droits de ces vulnérables est souvent causée par l'ignorance des lois.
Les coutumes,les religions , les écoles ne disent rien sur ces sujets.Notre mission est d'informer et former la communauté,c'est-a-dire,les femmes,les enfants,les hommes,les leaders et cadres de base.
Nous souhaiterions que World Puls nous aide a faire une vaste campagne de recherche de subvention,et même des organisations qui peuvent vouloir venir intervenir dans notre région.

Causes of the Cause

Brigitte,

Thank you for listing all the causes. You highlight the complexity of the issue and the need for a solution. It is clear that not enough is being done, specifically NGO's. I believe that this is an important issue that NGO's should not remain silent about any longer. We can't let this be the norm.

Sexual Violence in Congo

So many rapes...this is the story we need to send out to the world..we need to sensitize people about the realities of sexual violence. Locally I don't know what can be done..what do you think? what do you think will work? what strategy do you want to adopt to fight this plague?

all my warm thoughts

Bienvenue Brigitte!

Bienvenue à la communauté globale des femmes sur World Pulse !

Je suis honorée d'être en mesure de lire votre histoire.

Avez-vous des suggestions en plus pour les NGOs etc. à être efficace dans la bataille contre l'harassement et abuse sexuelle ? Quelle est la solution à ce grand problème ?
