Tchad : L'éduction pour les filles dans les camps de réfugiés soudanais, entre obstacle et espoir

N'Djamena, le 11 septembre 2014. Il ne faut pas sous-estimer ce que représente le fait de devoir marcher pendant des heures pour ramener de l'eau dans la chaleur étouffante du désert du Tchad oriental. C'est l'une des pires difficultés pour les femmes soudanaises vivant dans les camps de réfugiés du Tchad oriental, un lieu où les traditions socio-culturelles tendent à limiter leur rôle aux seules tâches domestiques : tâches ménagères, soins à apporter à de grandes familles, approvisionnement en eau.

Education for girls in Sudanese refugee camps, between obstacles and hope

N'Djamena, 11 September 2014 – Walking long distances to fetch water in the blistering desert heat of eastern Chad is not to be underestimated. It is one of the most arduous of tasks facing Sudanese women living in refugee camps in eastern Chad, a place where socio-cultural traditions tend to limit their role strictly to the domestic sphere: household chores, caring for large families and fetching water.

Haiti Cholera Response: Mid-Year Update (January - July 2014)

The cholera epidemic in Haiti has affected an unacceptable number of people with around 705,400 suspected cases and an estimated 8,500 deaths reported from October 2010 to 31 July 2014. Limited rains in 2014 and the response of the Government of Haiti (GoH) with the support of the UN and partners has led the number of projected cases for the year to be revised downward to 15,000 from an initial projection of 45,000. Despite a significant reduction in the incidence of cholera, Haiti continues to host the largest cholera epidemic in the western hemisphere.

Teachers union calls for boycott of Nigeria school restart

09/16/2014 21:36 GMT

LAGOS, September 16, 2014 (AFP) - The head of Nigeria's main teachers union called on Tuesday for a boycott of next week's re-opening of schools, saying there had not been enough training to protect against the Ebola virus.

Michael Olukoya, president of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), said members should boycott next Monday's planned re-opening because they have not received training and supplies like hand gloves and sanitisers promised by the government.
