COMBATTRE L’ABANDON PRECOCE DE L’ECOLE PAR LES JEUNES FILLES EN RDC

L’abandon précoce de l’école est dit à plusieurs facteurs pour les jeune filles à savoir : première l’âge, l’insuffisance de capacité intellectuelle, influence du milieu, la coutume, le mariage forcé que la famille exige en échange de convention. Ici en province du Sud-Kivu beaucoup des filles n’aiment pas poursuivre les études supérieures suite au manque de mariage ; parce qu’elles pensent, les hommes ne peuvent plus les fréquentées à causes de leurs capacités intellectuelles plus élevées. Les primaticiennes, les seconda iriennes ont mille chance de se marier facilement parce qu’elles n’ont pas à mesure de parler devant les hommes ni revendiquées ses droits. Ce pourquoi beaucoup des filles abandonnent les études et la famille aussi fait partir de l’abandon précoce de l’école des jeunes filles suite à une convention faite. Il y a la discrimination de la coutume qu’à telle âge les filles doivent nécessairement se marier si non on les appels « kecheni », la pauvreté, un décès d’un être cher dans la famille. Pour l’influence du milieu dès que les filles voient les autres filles se marier, elles sont désorientées, négligent les études.
Piste des solutions :
- Femmes d’affaires, femmes Ministre, World pulse ; ces problèmes nous concernent toutes. Aidons les jeunes filles avec des conseils aux changements des mentalités et les montrées combien les études sont nécessaire pour la vie des jeunes filles, elles seront capables de se prendre en charge au lieu de regarder sur le mari.

Fight against young girls dropping out of school in RDC

Dropping out of school is said to be caused by several factors that young girls should know: the first is their age, their insufficient intellectual capacity, the social environment's influence, the custom, forced marriages that the family insists upon in an exchanged agreement. Here in the province of South Kivu, many girls do not like to pursue higher education when they are not married because they think the men cannot date them if they are highly intellectual. Uneducated women are a thousand times more probable to easily marry because they are not worthy to talk in front of men nor demand their rights. This is why a lot of girls abandon their studies. The family also takes part in causing girls to abandon their studies when the family makes a forced marriage agreement. There is discrimination within the custom in which at a certain age, girls must marry, if not, they are called "kecheni", poverty, a death in the family of someone beloved. In regards to the influence of the social environment, when young girls watch other girls get married, they become disoriented and neglect their studies.
Some solutions:
-Business women, women ministers, Wolrd Pulse; these problems concern all of us. Help the young girls by giving advice so as to change their mentality, and show them how important education is for young girls. They will be capable to take charge instead of depending on their husband.
-Support them financially
-Build a school
-Provide sustainable security
-Access to technology
-Elimination of discrimination towards women and girls

Chère Mauwa Brigitte, Merci

Chère Mauwa Brigitte,
Merci pour cette contribution à World Pulse. Je vous remercie pour votre courage en déclarant les problèmes sociaux de votre milieu. Je trouve très frustrant que beaucoup de filles soient limitées par les conditions sociales. Je me demande si les femmes ou les filles ont le désir d’être indépendantes ou d’avoir la liberté de mener ses vies sans l’intervention des hommes ou de leurs familles. Néanmoins, je trouve que vos solutions sont bonnes et j’espère que ces filles peuvent bénéficier d’aucune aide. Je vous donne mon appui.
