DRAMA / BURUNDI: “ AMAYAGWA Y’ URWARUKA” Epis.23
A scene of ex refugee children, now back in their home country Burundi, discussing the question of young girls prostitution. The discussion is based on a girl who got impregnated by the man she was working for and the man kicked her out soon after he found out. The girl was forced then to prostitute herself, even while pregnant, to be able to earn some money to survive and to prepare for her upcoming baby.
But when her friends find out, they encourage her to stop prostitution and offer her their support and help in finding other ways of getting help like humanitarian agencies. These refugee children urge abstinence from sex until they are ready or if they have to, to protect themselves by using condoms.
