Contexte et justification de la mission
La zone de Bakala s’était vidée de la quasi-totalité de sa population (estimée à 13 000 habitants), suite aux combats entre l’UPC (qui contrôlait jadis la zone) et la coalition (le groupe armé qui contrôle actuellement la zone). La population en fuite avait emprunté 3 directions, principalement : l’axe Bakala-Bambari (Sud-Est), l’axe Bakala-Grimari (Sud-Ouest) et axe Bakala-Mbrès (Nord-Ouest).
CHISEC, Guatemala – Like many girls in Pecajbá, in Guatemala, Gladys Azucena Cho Cuc was forced to drop out when she reached secondary school. The high school was simply too far from home.
In rural communities around here, girls travel an average distance of about 8 km to get to class. Their commute often takes them over corn fields and rivers, and some girls spend part of their journey in the dark.
Introduction to the Study
The April 25 earthquake in Nepal and the subsequent aftershocks resulted in losses not only in terms of lives and physical infrastructures but also of historical, social, cultural and economic aspects of the country and its population. Thirty-one out of the 75 districts of Nepal were affected by this devastation with 14 of them located in the Central and Western mountains and hills including Kathmandu Valley and categorized by the Government of Nepal as the most affected1. An estimated 5.4 million people live in these 14 districts.
During conflict and other emergencies, women and girls, many of them pregnant or lactating mothers remain among the most severely affected groups. But for a visually-impaired mother with a new baby running to uncertainty, hope can only be restored when she realizes she is not alone after all.
LAMWO, Uganda: Forty-two year old Annet Night is visually impaired. She was due; expecting her fourth child when conflict broke out in her home village in Pajok, a community in Eastern Equatoria state of South Sudan.
