les filles meres sont des filles qui tombent enceinte sous leur toit decu par leurs amants elles se retrouvent meres prematurement incapable de supporter meme leurs enfants elles sont rejettees par leurs familles elles se sentent inutile dans la societe par exemple dans mon quartier nous avons le probleme de manque de l'eau potable si dans la famille il ya une fille mere c'est elle qui va se levee la nuit meme vers 3h du matin pour allee chercher de l eau elle ne peut pas refusee sinon elle sera jettee dehors avec son enfant vous imaginez seule dans l'obscurite avec des bidons errant par ici par la cherchant de l' eau vous voyez comment la malheureuse est exposee la viole voir meme la mort si une fois elle croise des voleurs a mains armees vous voyez vous meme le sort.voila pourquoi je souhaite les encandrees dans les diverses metiers.qu'elles se prennent en charge,dependre d'elles meme et surtout qu'elles se sentent impliquer dans la societe.

Girls are mothers of girls - becoming pregnant under their roof, disappointed by their lovers, they find themselves premature mothers unable to support their children. They are rejected by their families and feel useless in society. For example, in my neighborhood we have a problem of lack of drinking water. In any family, if there is a young mother, she must awake at 3 am to search for potable water – she would be thrown out of her home if she refused. Imagine, being in the dark with only your water drums, wandering around, being exposed to the chance of rape or death if you crossed armed men. This is why I want to help women as they pursue new jobs, so they can support themselves, so they feel involved, and a valued part of the community.

Merci Salumu Ziada,

Women in my country, Afghanistan, also suffer from akin sorts of violence, and I can understand how harrowing it is. Mainly because of too huge inequality in power and resources as well as the very traditional believes. On the other hand, the very first victims of an armed community are women due to their vulnerability. Guns and small arms easily enable men to maintain their dominance over women and that reinforces the gender based violence further and further. Women of your country need people like you; inspiring, energetic and having the great desire to break these inequalities. It's so good that you are aware of the threats and the difficulties - the first step into eliminating violence and inequality. Maintain your energy and keep moving.

Great story. I'm glad to see you are aware of the injustices taking place against women in your community. But I would like to see more of a personal touch to this. Are there any specific examples you can give? I think training and preparing women for the workforce is a great way for women to support themselves and learn to become valued members of society. Are there any other solutions? Keep up the good work!

Thank you for sharing this story about the juxtaposition of the significant role women play in their community, specifically in such an essential role as delivering water to their families. At the same time their role puts them at risk to experience direct violence and live with fear. This is a powerful story about violence against women and the lack of accessible drinking water that most people in the world are experiencing. I appreciate your focus on this issue.

Warm regards, Sarah
