25/04/2016 What daily life is like for refugees stranded in Greece

Migrant families at a tent camp near the Greece-Macedonia border are trying to keep their spirits up in the face of sickness, rain, boredom, anxiety and a lack of information about whether they'll be able to continue their journey northward or be sent back to Turkey, Voice of America reports.

"Hope is all they have to drag them through days that swing between monotonous boredom hunched in their tents when it pours and a frantic scramble to get food and to repair tents when the sun shines," according to VOA.


22/04/2016 : AFGHANISTAN – Girls' education at risk with taliban

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — One of Afghanistan's proudest achievements has been getting millions of children, especially girls, back into school since the toppling of the Taliban. But that success is crumbling across the south and in other battleground areas of the country, where hundreds of schools have been forced to shut down. Sometimes the cause is fighting, sometimes it's intimidation from the Taliban.

19/02/2016 - The girl who said 'no' to marriage

Balkissa Chaibou dreamed of becoming a doctor, but when she was 12 she was shocked to learn she had been promised as a bride to her cousin. She decided to fight for her rights - even if that meant taking her own family to court.

"I came from school at around 18:00, and Mum called me," Balkissa Chaibou recalls. "She pointed to a group of visitors and said of one of them, 'He is the one who will marry you.' "I thought she was joking. And she told me, 'Go unbraid, and wash your hair.' That is when I realised she was serious."


15/03/2016 - Women Refugees at Risk in Europe

This report reviews the risks for women refugees as they make the dangerous trek across Europe. The report finds that women are vulnerable a bottleneck points along the route, and even more vulnerable when they reach reception centres that do not have secure and separate sleeping areas for women. Women also experience sexual violence at alarming rates and there is currently 100% impunity for gender-based crimes committed against refugee women. High numbers of refugee women are pregnant with no access to pre- or post-natal care.


Nouveau programme contre le mariage précoce en Jordanie

Le mariage précoce en Jordanie

En Jordanie, le mariage précoce est toléré dès l'âge de 15 ans si l'union est jugée "bénéfique pour les deux conjoints". Dans les familles nombreuses, où le salaire du père de famille peine à nourrir tous les enfants, le mariage précoce est un moyen de mettre les jeunes filles à l'abri du besoin. Outre le respect de la tradition, ces mariages procurent une certaine fierté aux parents.
