violation des droits de la femme et de la jeune fille

Le probleme de violance base sur le genre en RDC est en train de se manifester dans tous les domaines. Au niveau du travail la majorite des autotorites ou des chefs de services sont des hommes. Les femmes engagees occupent des postes de sibalternes et lorsque il sagit de donner une promotion ce ne sont que les hommes qui sont les beneficiaires.
Dant le domaine scolaire tous les enfants filles et garcons sont inscrits au niveau du primaire. Au fure a mesure qu'ils montent des classes, les filles sont eliminees soit par les problemes familials, soit par la conjoncture ou bien par elle meme a cause de manque des informations ou par ignorance. Quelque fois, certaines filles peuvent preferer continuer leurs etudes mais il arrive les fois qu'a la fin de l'annee scolaire certains enseignants vendent des points et les eleves filles imridentes apres avoir ceder se trouvent deja en grossees etcela les empeche de ne plus entrer a l'ecole lors de l'ouverture scolaire.
Cet genre de pratique est une forme de violence que font les enseignant contre les eleves filles qu'ils enseignent.

English translation by PulseWire member cynthia123

The problem of violence on the people in the RDC is manifesting itself across all sectors in the country. In the employment sector, a majority of the heads and chief of service are men. Women mostly occupy support roles and when a position is up for promotion, they are usually passed on to the men.

In the education sector, the girls and boys are enrolled equally at the primary level. As they continue to ascend academically, the girls are eliminated either for domestic reasons, or for her personal situation or even her lack of information or ignorance. Sometimes, some girls may want to continue their education but at the end of the school year, certain teachers sell results for money and this prevents them from returning to school at the start of the school year. This practice is a form of violence by teachers against female students.

Hello Kabulanyi!

Thanks for sharing your story and experiences in RDC. I am frustrated by the fact that you have seen educators selling out the future of women in your area. If you can do one thing to help people will notice. For example one way to start would be to educate and inform young woman in your area to address the lack of information and ingorance you mention holding holding them back.

I wish you the best of luck in journey to make a difference in RDC.

Sincerely,
Justin Cambra

Sad story

It's a sad story that such important role as teacher has misused his/her power.
However, thanks for sharing this story.
