Difficulties faced by Congolese mothers
Congolese mothers are facing many challenges in their lives today. Men have no access to jobs anymore and women are carrying the weight of family responsibilities and are trying their best to find jobs. The educated women are being asked by employers to be intimate with them otherwise they don’t get employed. Other women are failing in class. We are bringing up our children in very difficult conditions yet they are the ones who will help the country tomorrow. We are asking for help from you because we would like to have means of self reliance. My name is Binwa Rehema I am a mother of eight children.
