LUTTE CONTRE L’ABANDON PRÉCOCE DES ÉTUDES

Die en créant l’homme et la femme, il les a dotés des capacités habiles pour gérer ensemble la création. C’est pourquoi, c’est pourquoi les opportunités offertes les concernent tous. En ce qui concerne les études, actuellement les statistiques nous montrent que les filles sont plus nombreuses que les hommes plus de 70 %. Malheureusement, beaucoup d’entre elles abandonnent les études au fur à mesure qu’elles avancent à cause de plusieurs contraintes dont voici quelques unes :
- La répartition inéquitable des tâches à la maison ;
- Le garçon est privilégié au détriment de la fille en cas des manques de frais ;
- La fille prend la relève du soin de la famille par des petits commerces ou la prostitution
- Le harcèlement sexuel et aussi les points sexuellement transmissibles au niveau des institutions scolaires ;
- La hausse des frais scolaires alors que les parents n’ont pas un salaire décent ;
- Le manque des moyens pour supporter toute la famille ;
- La sous estimation de la fille ;
- La persistance des guerres avec tous ses corollaires (pauvreté accentuée, viols et violences sexuelles, tueries, vols, etc.
Au vu de tous ce qui précède, le combat à mener nous renvoi plus à combattre les causes qui entrainent l’abandon. La fille tout comme le garçon a des capacités. Combien de fois nous avons vu les filles avoir des bons résultats dans des classes ou même les promotions où il y a des hommes ? Cela prouve à raison que la société doit compter sur elle car demain elle sera mère épouse et son influence sur l’enfant qu’elle doit éduquer et sur son mari comme conseillère à partir de ce qu’elle a appris à l’école car dit on « éduquer une femme c’est éduquer toute une nation ». C’est pourquoi nous demandons à tous ceux qui sont concernés de veiller à l’instruction de la fille car même son rendement efficace au travail ne dépendra que de sa formation.
- Aux parents nous recommandons de faire le partage équitable des tâches et d’offrir les mêmes chances à la fille comme au garçon
- Aux institutions scolaires de prendre des mesures de protection pour la jeune fille et revoir à la baisse quelques frais pour permettre à la fille aussi d’étudier convenablement
- Au gouvernement de payer un salaire décent aux fonctionnaires et de promouvoir la discrimination positive à l’égard de la fille en ce qui concerne ses études.
- A la fille de prendre conscience d’être compétitive, et de ne plus continuer à se sous estimer car elle a aussi des atouts comme le garçon.
Nous voilà en bref notre contribution en ce qui concerne l’abandon précoce de la fille aux études. Nous invitons les lecteurs de cet articles de prendre compte de ces propos pour mener des plaidoyers à qui de droit pour que la fille puisse être instruite convenablement et participer à la gestion des intérêts de la chose publique (société).

STRUGGLE AGAINST EARLY ABANDONMENT OF STUDIES

God, in creating man and woman, blessed them with skillful capacities to manage creation together. That is why, that is why the opportunities offered are of concern to all of us. Regarding studies, current statistics show us that girls are more numerous than boys, by more than 70%. Unfortunately, many of them abandon their studies as they advance for several reasons of which here are some examples:
-the inequitable division of tasks in the home; -the boy is privileged to the detriment of the girl in the case of lack of money; -the girl takes on the task of the care of the family in small-business or by prostitution -sexual-harassment and also sexually-transmitted infections at the level of scholarly institutions;
-the increase in school fees when the parents don’t have a decent salary;
-lack of means to support the whole family;
-the under estimation of the girl;
-the persistence of war with all its corollaries-- extreme poverty, rape and sexual violence, murders, robberies, etc.
Considering all that goes first, combat has lead us back to fighting the causes that lead to abandonment. The girl, just like the boy, has capabilities. How many times have we seen that a girl has good results or even promotions in the classes where there are men? It stands to reason that society should count on her because tomorrow she’ll be a mother, a spouse, and her influence will be over the child that she should educate and over her husband for whom she will be an adviser as a result of what she learned in school. As they say “to educate a woman is to educate the entire nation.” That is why we demand of all of those who are concerned with ensuring the instruction of the girl to understand that even her effective performance at work will only depend on her training.
-To parents, we recommend to make an equitable sharing of tasks and to offer the
same opportunities to the girl as to the boy
-To scholarly institutions, to take protective measures for girls even looking at lowering some of the fees in order to permit girls also to study properly
-To the government, to pay a decent salary to the workers and to promote positive discrimination regarding girls as it concerns their education.
-To the girl, to become conscious of being competitive, and no longer continue to underestimate herself because she has all the assets that a boy has.
Here is our brief contribution to what concerns early abandonment of studies by the girl. We invite the readers of this article to consider these suggestions in order to lead these pleas for the girl to be properly educated and to participate in the management of interests in the public space (society).

Importance d'Etudier!

Je vous encourage beaucoup ma sœur à vouloir réveiller la conscience des éducateurs qui dort.
Beaucoup de parents ont longtemps pensé que la fille n’avait pas le droit d'étudier. D'autres pensaient qu'elle n'était destinée qu'au mariage pour la procréation et les travaux ménagers. Mais curieusement, ceux-là qui ont décide de mettre leurs filles l'école s'étonne de voir qu'elles ont meilleurs que les garçons.
J'apprécie beaucoup la manière dont vous classez les nombres d'inégalités, à la maison, à l’école et même la manière de reveiller la conscience des responsables des enfants à tous les niveaux.
Encore une fois Courage ! Nous espérons que nous les femmes nous gagnerons un jour la confiance des hommes par notre savoir faire.

J'ai traduit votre journal

chère Joelle

J'ai traduit votre journal impressionant en anglais. Vous avez bien raison...il faut que les filles soient aussi bien éducées que les garçons. Il faut que les familles les considèrent du même importance que leurs fils. Votre journal est très important.
