Can you get out of prostitution and still start a home?

Prostitution as a survival strategy is one of the means used by young women in street situations. Canadian studies on the subject estimate between 12% and 32% the number of young women living on the street engaged in prostitution. These young women do it either by themselves or by relatives: relatives, friends, and even partners in love (Damant et al., 2006). These as emphasized by Messervier, 1999 may also have an important role in the process of exit from prostitution.

The democratic Republic of Congo has just crisscrossed a very critical stage in its history; a democratic election which has been expected since 2016 when Joseph Kabila’s second term came to an end.

Presidential elections-2018 in Madagascar: a diary of monitoring mission

I was fortunate to take part along with AFRIC in the election monitoring mission in Madagascar, which took place on 7th of November.
36 international observers from all over the world represented AFRIC election monitoring mission at this milestone in Madagascar. Why was it a milestone?
After the political and economic crisis of 2001 and 2009, the Malagasy state counterpoised some stability and economic growth. Reports from IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank show that the current economic situation is quite favorable. That's why the choice of the Malagasy people is more important now than ever.
