Human Rights Watch has denounced Sexual exploitation, harassment and abuse of power within schools in Senegal.
The document is based on research conducted from June 2017 to July 2018, in the regions of Kolda, Sédhiou, Ziguinchor, Dakar, and its surroundings.
The report highlights the testimonies of 164 young girls in 4 regions of Senegal’s 14 regions.
“ Human Rights watch found out that, there are abusive teachers who exploit children in schools. The kids are exploited in different ways, especially the vulnerability of many girls who cannot afford education and find it difficult having didactic materials to help them succeed “ according to the NGO’s representative in Dakar.
The report of this NGO has been welcomed with mixed feelings. Some parents have appreciated what they think is the revelation of a vice that has existed for a long time in Senegal.
“ Responsibilities must be allocated, there is the responsibility of teachers, the responsibility of students; and the responsibility of parents.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
