Assignment for « Doctors of The World »

Assignment for « Doctors of The World » partner of the Burkinabe association « Keoogo » which aims to protect children in street situations in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso.

The problem of girls in street situations, less visible than that of boys, is on the rise in Ouagadougou. The latest national census, carried out in 2017, puts the number of street children at around 9,300, of which almost 20% are girls. And the deteriorating security situation in the country is making matters worse: the 10,000 mark has been passed. © OLIVIER PAPEGNIES

Spacious and bright, the Beoogo Tienbo (hope for the future) village, created by the « Keoogo » association, is a temporary living space made up of a set of round huts. It was designed to meet the psychosocial, training and educational needs of the girls and their children by providing them with a suitable environment.

« Unwanted » at the Manifesto Festival in Toulouse

A small glimpse of my work on unwanted pregnancies in the Ivory Coast and the DRC carried out for Médecins du Monde France exhibited at the Festival Manifesto in Toulouse until October 3rd. This is the first step of my long term project throughout the world…

UNWANTED
The story of Jacqueline, who became pregnant at the age of 17, is common here in Soubré, Ivory Coast. She was only in ninth grade and she did not want a child. Her only dream was to continue her schooling to become a teacher. However, she saw her dreams shattered when she had consensual but unprotected sex with a classmate. She knew nothing about contraceptive methods. She had never used a condom or heard of pills. Disowned and thrown out on the street by her parents, she found refuge with her grandmother. With the help of Médecins du Monde France, she will benefit from medical and psycho-social follow-up throughout her pregnancy. Since then she has had her little Julien and has been able to go back to school. Ivory Coast, September, 25 2018. © OLIVIER PAPEGNIES
