Sur le plan international que national , nous vous demandons de collaborer avec le gouvernement congolais pour trouver des solutions durables et à long terme pour mettre fin à ce probleme de guerre et insecurité , surtout à l'est du pays,car ,c'est ce qui cause même la violence sexuelle aux femmes congolaises.

Sur le plan social ; nous demandons qu'il y ait intégration socio-économique des femmes congolaises à travers les projet des activité génératrice de revenu .

Ex,l’octroie de micro-crédit,prise en charge psycho-sociale des femmes violées à chabunda, prise en charge des enfants orphelins de guerre, création des métiers pour les veuves.

N.B ! A la prochaine occasion, je veux vous envoyer une note conceptuelle d'un projet.

On the international and national map, we ask you to collaborate with the Congolese government to find lasting and long-term solutions to end the problem of war and instability, particularly in the East of the country. That is what causes even sexual violence against Congolese women.

On the social map, we ask that there be socio-economic integration of Congolese women across the design of income-generating activities.

For example, micro-credit grants that psychologically and socially support raped women in Chabunda, that support children orphaned in the war and the creation of jobs for widows.

Also, next time I want to send you a conceptual letter for a project.

Mambo Filomene, I want to commend you for the very excellent proposals you have set forth here. War and the products of warfare often include unfortunately the raping of women and girls as well as creates mayhem in society. Law and order are tossed aside and this no doubt accounts for the instability that follows any outbreak of war. It is sad and unacceptable however that men and boys should turn against women who are their mothers, sisters and daughters. My hope is that your plea for income-generating projects, such as micro credit loans and grants, will become a reality and help assist these traumatized victims of rape and war. Women have indeed proven to be great bread winners and leaders when afforded the opportunity. Thanks for your great insight into these issues that plague the Congolese people in general and especially the women who were raped in Chabunda.

Dear Mambo Filomene,

Thank you for sharing your energy with us. I think that you are a woman full of energy and enthusiasm and that your community is very lucky to have you around. YES!! Do try to think of alternatives to help women around you especially those most destitute. I'd like to read your project and if possible help you with it.

all best and lots of positive energy,

Irina

Filomene,

Vous avez tout a fait raison et vous resumez des points importants qui devraient aider a arriver a une normalisation de la vie quotidienne de la population cible. Je vous conseillerai, si cela est possible, de commencer a travailler sur le terrain meme sans moyen en utilisant votre creativite et ensuite vous pourrez presenter vos differents projets en expliquant ce qui a deja ete fait et que vous avez atteint in stade ou vous avez besoin d'aide pour continuer. Toutes les femmes africaines et non-africaines esperent sincerement que la situation de votre pays s'ameliore rapidement pour la population et surtout la gente feminine qui en paie un lourd tribu. Cette situation n'a que trop perdure. Bon courage et merci de continuer a nous tenir au courant.

I appreciate the fact that you've addressed the need for involvement on the international, national and social fronts. The micro-credit grants are an excellent example of a specific way people around the world can help.

Thank you for a concise piece that suggests some of the key problems facing women in your country.
