RDC :Seuls les enfants des parents riches vont a l’école

En Rdc, seuls les enfants des parents qui ont des moyens vont à l’école.
Le constat est de la coalition nationale de l’éducation pour tous CONEP,
qui est déterminée à combattre cet état des choses. A coté des enfants des
parents démunis, plusieurs adultes n’ont pas eu accès à l’école dans leur
jeune âge. Eux aussi sont concernés par la lutte de la CONEP.
Dans une rencontre tenue à Goma ce mercredi par le président national de
cette coalition, ses membres ont convenu de créer prochainement un
observatoire de l’éducation.
Ponchelin Byamumonyi, président provincial de la Conep au Nord Kivu
explique que cet observatoire aura pour mission le suivi des actions du
gouvernement en matière de l’éducation.
Notons que la coalition nationale de l’éducation pour tous est composée des
syndicats des enseignants, des ong œuvrant dans le domaine de l’éducation
ainsi que des associations des parents.

CONEP

Bonjour Cheri,

Quelle belle initiative! C'est très encourageant de voir que les enseignants, les ONG et les associations des parents s'engagent à travailler ensemble sous le drapeau de la CONEP!

La CONEP va pouvoir suivre l'action du gouvernement pour s'assurer de l'instruction de la majorité des personnes - riches ou pauvres, jeunes ou âgés, garçons ou filles.

Merci d'avoir partagé cela avec nous.

Tenez-nous au courant.

Bien à vous,

Edith

Merci pour votre blog.

Merci pour votre blog. Quelle est votre relation avec CONEP? Est-ce que vous pensez que la coalition peut améliorer la situation des enfants? Est-ce que c'est un problème d'argent ou d'accès?
