En RDC,les violences reignent beaucoup car meme le droit de l'enfant n'est pas respecté.Quand nous regardons dans larmée,il y a récritement des mineurs ou enfants moins de 18ans dans certains groupes comme dans M23.Pour la scolarisation,les enfants sont soumisent à des travaux lourds pour se cherher eux meme les frais scolaires car meme les droits des parents envers l'Etat ne sont pas aussi misent en pratique et cela fait que les parents se trouvent incapables dassurer les droits de leurs enfants.Ceci amene alors la présence de plusieurs enfants dans la rue.

VIOLENCE

In DRC, much of the violence also takes place because the right of the child is not respected. If we look at the army, there are recruitments of minors and children under 18 in certain groups like M23. Regarding schooling, children forced to do heavy work to be able to pay the school fees for themselves, because even the rights of parents in front of the state are not put into practice. Therefore parents are unable to assure the rights for their children. This then leads to the presence of several street children.

Dear Delvie,

Thank you for bringing our attention to this important aspect of violence in your country. Unfortunately, the circumstances your describe are a global issue facing many countries. It is easy to overlook violence against children, but we must work to shift the way communities view their children so that they are seen as valuable and worthy of things such as school fees and an experience of childhood that is free from violence. When parents' rights are also compromised, it leads to a horrible cycle of violence that ultimately hurts children even more. We must help our parents, leaders, armies, and entire communities to understand that our children are our future, and thus we must invest in them today.

In solidarity, Kirsten

Dear Delvie, This is a very serious crime. Children have to be protected because they are the future of the country. You need to engage the human rights activtists in your country to fight for the rights of these children and involve various international organisations like UNICEF and other international ngos. You can write and inform the African Commission on peoples and human rights about these violations through a communication. My heart breaks when i hear these saddening stories and the power is with us to ensure that these children are protected from any violation. I stand with you and can be reached for any advice. Stay blessed my sister

Dear Delvie, Thank you so much for letting us know what is happening to the children in your country. It is appalling when Children bear the brunt of the troubles, and yet it is so often the case in many parts of the world. The first step is speaking out and letting the world and your community know that enough is enough and this kind of behaviour cannot go on, which is exactly what you are doing here on world pulse. Blessings Tina

Dear Delvie,

DRC as a country is really going through a lot. Many things for trying to improving the plight of children through what you are sharing today. Sensitizing them on their rights, and even other like stakeholders like line government ministries and the police would be a good way to start.

All the best.
