Le journalisme est une solution aux problemes de droits des femmes en R D Congo

Je suis Mme Brigitte Mawazo,infirmière de formation et coordinatrice de l'asbl de défense des droits des l'homme et de développement renommée NGABO,
Je suis intéressée de l’opportunité 2.0 offerte par VOF,parce qu'elle est une réponse positive a mes préoccupations.Elle me motive a être vigilante sur toutes questions relatives au droit de la femme et rompre le silence en les dénonçant.
En adhérant a la communauté World Puls,je voulais en plus exprimer ma gratitude de me rapprocher du monde et des personnes que je n'aurais jamais rencontrées.
Ce digital médias devient pour moi une voix de solution a divers niveaux:
-Il me donne une ouverture au monde et me permet d'entrer en contacte avec non seulement le journal mais aussi le journaliste lui-même.

-Il me donne l'occasion de peuplier mon journal sur une page digitale ouverte.Ceci constitue pour moi un remède contre la schizophrénie.
-Chaque fois que j'ai des problèmes dans le cadre de violation des droits des femmes ,mon cœur devient très compressé et je manque de sommeil.Mais une fois j’ai publie ces choses dans mon journal digital,je me retrouve relaxée,libérée . satisfaction de trouver une psychotera pie.
-Nous partageons aux autres ce qui se passe dans notre pays facilement sur ces pages digitales.
Mes solutions pour que cette méthode digitale devienne plus compétitive et performative est que VOF,devienne aussi une école des droits.Que les membres suivent des formations en ligne sur World Puls sur internet.

Journalism is a solution to the rights of women in the DRC.

My name is Mrs. Brigitte Mawazo. I am a nurse in training and a coordinator for the renown assembly of the defense of human rights and development NGABO.

I am interested in the opportunity 2.0 offered by VOF because it would offer a positive outcome to my worries. It would motivate me to be vigilante regarding questions related to the rights of women and to break the silence by denouncing the abuses.

By joining the World Pulse community, I would like, also, to express my gratitude at being able to become a part of a world and people, which I would otherwise never be able to meet.

This digital media would be, for me, a path to a solution on many levels: it would give me an opening to the world, and world permit me to come into contact, not only with the journal, but with the journalist himself.

It would give me the opportunity to fill my journal on a digital page, and do so openly. This would constitute, for me, a remedy against schizophrenia. Whenever I have a problem in the area of the violation of women’s rights, my heart becomes very heavy and I don’t sleep at night. But once I have published these things in my on-line journal, I feel relaxed and free in the satisfaction of having found some sort of psychotherapy. We are able, through the pages of these journals, to easily share with others the things that happen in this country.

My solution, in order to make VOF more competitive and effective, would be to for it to become a school of rights, and that members could follow classes online at World Pulse internet.

Merci de partager votre

Merci de partager votre histoire. Il est vrai que le partage de notre expérience avec d'autres est libératrice. Une question que j'ai pour vous, c'est comment les gens dans la République Démocratique du Congo actuellement obtenir des informations sur les droits de l'homme? Ont-ils accès à l'information en ligne, ou est-ce essentiellement grâce à des campagnes communautaires sur le terrain?

Merci,

Rachael

YOUR QUESTION

Merci pour avoir commenté mon journal.
Votre question est très capitale. Ici a l'Est de la R D congo, parler des droits de l'homme et ceux des femmes est un grand combat. Il y a des risques graves a être défenseur des droits humains ou bien journaliste qui s'engage a faire un plaidoyer en faveur des victimes.Enseigner les droits humains c'est une manière de libérer un prisonnier ou bien des esclaves.Alors vous aurez des problèmes avec le geôlier ou bien le maitre.
Ceux qui profitent dans les violations des droits humais sont des hommes armées,des chefs coutumiers,des pasteurs , chefs des églises,des professeurs et enseignants des écoles .........
La classe moyenne constituée en majorité des femmes analphabètes désirent connaitre leurs droits,Mais la majorité des gouvernants considèrent cet acte comme une accusation et une incitation a la révolte et au boycotte de la coutume ou bien aux règlements sacrés de l’église.
Mais malingre ces difficultés nous nous engageons a faire quelque chose
Brigitte

hank you for commenting on my journal.
Your question is very capital. Here in the east of DR Congo, talk about human rights and women's is a great fight. There is a serious risk to human rights defender, or journalist who agrees to make a plea for human rights victimes.Enseigner is a way to release a prisoner or else you will have problems esclaves.Alors with the jailer or the master.
Those who benefit in human rights violations are sniffed armed men, traditional leaders, pastors, church leaders, teachers, and school teachers .........
The middle class consists mostly illiterate women want to know their rights, but most governments consider this act as a charge and an incitement to revolt and boycott of custom regulations or sacred church.
But sickly these difficulties we pledge to do something

Inspiring!

It is wonderful that you've found a digital outlet for your worries. It is inspiring that you want to use the Web 2.0 platform to share information about women's rights. When women understand what their rights are, they are more empowered to stand up for them. The more we work together, the more we can help others. Thank you for sharing!

Cassady

votre comprehension est parfaite.
je suis convaincue que la langue n'est pas une barrierre dans nos partages
Merci
