Quand le Ministère de la Santé a annoncé que le virus Ebola était arrivé au Libéria, j’étais dans un état de déni. C’était dur, toute la ville de Monrovia ressemblait à nouveau à un champ de bataille. Dans les Conseils des jeune...

Last year 575 women were murdered – 3 women every other day – and just 11% of those cases ended-up in trial. When walking in the streets or even at school, the threat of being raped is omnipresent. The threat of being abused in school is so high that it is a barrier to education. "But I try to be part of the solution by providing worksh...
