LA PROBLEMETIQUE DE L'EDUCATION ET INSTRUCTION DES FILLES/UN DEFIS A RELEVER

L'éducation de la jeune fille continue à souffrir de plus en plus dans nos communautés et dans notre pays la RDC. ce dernier temps il y a le mariage précoce qui prime beaucoup sur la plus part d'entre eux. A un certain âge (de 15 à 17 ans) les filles commencent à ce procurer de mariage, mais quand elles termines 3 ans déjà chez son partenaire; elle devienne dégouter avec ce dernier, et une fois en cours de route elle rencontre un autre partenaire et ce dit, voilà un homme à qui mon cœur rechercher il y a longtemps et maintenant elle procède la divorce, tous simplement parce qu'elle s'était marié avant l'âge.
Tous cela arrive parce que:
1. Elle est influencé par sa taille et ses compagnons.
2. être engrosser par un partenaire qui lui faisait la cours.
3. Envie d'être appeler mère de tel ou telle autre.
Une fois que tous ceci soient arrivé; il engendre l’avortement, et une fois qu'elle se voit grosse; et peut être qu'elle l'est devenue sans le vouloir, elle fait ce qu'on appel "avortement provoqué". Et cette avortement provoqué arrive quant:
1. La fille chez elle est menacé par ses parents,
2. Craindre de perdre ses études, s'elle étudiait,
3. Peur d'être appelé fille mère. etc.
Comprenez que parfois la manque d'occupation, des guides, et avoir une mauvaise compagnie peut faire à ce que la jeune croule sous beaucoup de risques. Sur ce, les parents et la communauté tout entier à les grands charge d'éduquer les jeunes filles surtout car éduquer une femme c'est éduqué toute une nation dit on.

The education of young women continues to suffer more and more in our communities and in our country, the DRC. The last time there was early marriage that first much, for the the most part, between them. At a certain age (between 15-17 years old), girls start to seek out a marriage, but when they end up 3 years already at the home of their partner, they become disgusted with this and one time in the course of the road she discovers another partner and thus said, there is a man who my heart is searching for for a long time and now she is getting a divorce, all simply because she was married before the legal age.
All of this happens because:

1. She is influenced by his size and his companions
2. She is taken in by a partner who makes his own way.
3. She wants to be called ‘mom’ in one way or another.

Once all this had happens; it can result in an abortion, and once she is visibly pregnant and maybe if she became pregnant unintentionally, she does something called an “induced abortion”, and this induced abortion happens when:

1. The girl is threatened in her home by her parents
2. She is afraid of losing her studies, or what she studied.
3. Fear of being called a ‘teen mother’, etc.

Understand that sometimes the lack of occupation, mentors and having a bad group of peers can make the girl collapse under all the risks. Given this, the parents and the entire community have the huge job of educating the young women, especially because as they say, when you educate a woman you educate a whole nation.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

J'aime votre phrase finale

Cette phrase est très vrai, mais je pense ce n'est pas seulement les femmes, mais aussi les hommes qui sont les pères qui sont responsible et present dans des vies de leurs enfants.

Merci pour votre contribution à World Pulse!

Continuez d'écrire!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us Anuarite! It appears that there is much work to be done in the DRC and it is voices like yours that need to be heard so that we can all read about what's happening in your country and unite to help change it.
You're a brave woman and I look forward to reading more of your writing in the WP community. God bless!

Merci Beaucoup

Anuarite, j'apprécie vos réflexions sur l'état de l'éducation des filles en RDC. Je suis d'accord avec votre sentiment lorsque vous éduquez une fille, vous éduquez la nation tout entière. Peut-être la ressource la plus importante que nous pouvons utiliser pour augmenter la force de nos sœurs est de les aider à mettre hors mariage à une date ultérieure, et de souligner qu'ils sont capables de réussir sans un mari.

Je vous encourage à continuer à écrire! Je vous remercie pour votre travail.
Tous les meilleurs,
Elizabeth

Chère Anuarite, Merci

Chère Anuarite,

Merci beaucoup pour sur tes commentaires concernant le sort des jeunes filles en RDC. Je partage aussi tes sentiments vis-à-vis de l'importance primordiale d'éduquer les filles afin qu'elles se rendent compte des choix qu'elles peuvent faire. Cela m'attriste beaucoup d'apprendre que les filles se voient obliger de se marier pour échapper à leur malheur. Pis, elles se forcent à avorter ce qui est extrêmement risqué et peut nuire très gravement à leur santé.
Je te remercie encore une fois pour ton courage et ta ténacité.
Bonne continuation!
Léa
