« We cannot claim to be working to improve the collective well-being of the populations of the region today and tomorrow without considering the issue of the condition of girls and women as a crucial issue. Since the launch of WATHI, we have launched various initiatives to bring issues of gender inequality into the public debate, in particular by giving a voice to girls and women who themselves describe the problems they face. which these are stories of white people. Everywhere in the world there are gender inequalities, it is not an African specificity. We must refocus the debate on what these inequalities mean concretely for our societies, including violence against respect for girls and women are only the most extreme manifestation. » Gilles Yabi. Program with Ghaëls Mbaye, women’s rights activist and program manager at Afrikajom Center.
