Summary

In the eastern part of the DRC, ravaged by repeated wars, particularly Walungu and Kalehe territories, women have endured decades of misdeeds and live in increased marginalization and poverty, and have difficulties to meet their family's needs when they have become the first to be responsible for the context of their lives. Victims of a non-protective environment, young people and women become vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and other violations of their rights.
