Blogueur invité – La RDC est un pays controversé. On parle souvent de ses inégalités, de l’insécurité et de la corruption, mais moins de l’éducation, pourtant la base de toute société. Reportage dans les Virunga.

De mon point de vue les enfants qui n’ont jamais été à l’école sont probablement à la charge d’une famille incapable de les scolariser à cause d’une extrême pauvreté qui hante le foyer. Je me suis rendu sur le terrain pour mener mon enquête.

report UN Children's Fund

By Alexandre Brecher
