LES FILLE DE D.R CONGO DANS DE VILLE DE BUKAVU N'ONT PAS LES DROITS, ILS ONT QUE LES DEVOIRS

Je me souviens quant j’étais vers 4ème Primaire. On nous enseigner sur le devoir des enfants en vers les parents et aussi les droits des parents envers ses enfants. On nous a dit que les enfants fille comme garçon doivent à leurs parents
-l’affection
- les respects
-l’obéissance etc.
Et aussi l’enfant fille comme garçon a le droit vers son parent être
-vetu
-soigner
-protéger etc.
Mais je constante que ici chez nous D.R CONGO les filles n’ont pas les droits envers leur parents, elles ont que les devoirs.je peut dire que. S’il ya 100% des filles. Je suis sure et certain que 80%des filles applique ses devoir vers leurs parents mais c’est ne pas les même cas pour nos parents.je peut dire aussi s’il ya 100% des parents c’est 2o% qui applique ses droit vers leur fille.
Même moi qui vous parle ses droit ne pas applicable sur moi. Si je demande quelque chose comme argent d’acheté mes besoins on ne me donne pas et souvent on me dit si je ne pas de copain
Et plusieurs filles sont victime par le langage pareil du parent. Lorsque la fille demande et les parents repos a la fille qu’elle n’a pas de copain.la fille aussi va se dire oui bien sur j’ai de copain.et elle va commence a demande au copain de l’argent pour satisfaire ses besoin. Le copain aussi va se dire moi je donne sans réservoir et lui aussi va commence a demande a la fille de couche ensemble.lafille aussi sans se consentement libre. Elle doit accepter à cause de chose donne par le copain.
Tant des irresponsabilités qui dominent au D.R CONGO dans la ville de Bukavu .les parents ne parle pas a leur fille.il sont la entre de voir leur fille trop petite la. Soit encore élevé, elle ne travail pas. Mais la fille amène cher eux des habits neuf, bijoux, téléphone de prix cher. De même que son parents n’a jamais toucher ni acheté .les parent au lieu dire a leurs fille de laisse se mauvaise chemin.ils est la entre d’encourage leur fille en oublie qui met la vie de leur fille en danger. Pour quoi en danger .parce que les filles qui a mené. chez eux des habits cher etc. Ne quitte pas avec de garçons mais avec le papa d’autrui et la il ya la malédiction qui est la sur elle etc.
Nous prions a nos parent de prendre encore leur responsabilité .de met a n’application leur devoir en vers nous ses enfant fille comme garçon.de ne pas nous exposer nous les filles au danger .merci

English translation by community member Zhuyun Maggie Xiao

I remember the time when I was in the fourth year of my elementary school. We were taught the duty of children to parents and also the rights of parents to their children. We were told that the boys and girls have to show the followings to their parents: -love -respect -obedience,etc.
And also the girls, as boys, have the rights to their parents:

- dressed

- treat

- protect etc.

But I noticed that we here at RDC girls do not have the rights towards their parents. I am certain that 80% of the girls fulfill its duty to their parents, but this is not vice versa. I can also say there are only 20% of the parents who will fulfill their duty to their daughter.

Even I who speak to you about the law which does not apply to me. If I ask something such as money to buy things I need, I was not given any and was always being told that I do not have a boyfriend.

Many girls are victims of similar words from their parents.

When the girl asks parents for something, the parents will lay back since she doesn’t have a boyfriend. The girl will say “yes, of course I have a boyfriend” and she will begin to ask her boyfriend for money to satisfy her needs. Her boyfriend will say “it is me who give you things” and will start asking the girl to sleep with him. The girl does not have the freedom to consent; she must accept her boyfriend’s demand because things she need are given by her boyfriend.

So much irresponsibility dominates DRC in Bukavu city. Parents do not talk to their daughters; they are there to watch their little girls. When the girls grow up, they do not work. However, they bring home new clothes, jewelry and expensive phones. Just the same way as that their parents never touch or buy those thing for them, the parents, instead, ask their daughters to leave the bad route. They encourage their daughters while forgetting who put their daughters’ life in danger. Don’t leave with boys but with dad, there is the curse which are on the girls.

We pray to our parents to take their responsibilities, to enforce their duty towards their young daughters as to their sons, and don’t expose their daughter to danger. Thank you.
