Haiti – FLASH : Grand’Anse, 40 underage students from the same school, pregnant
Marie Ghislaine Monpremier Minister for the Status of Women and Women’s Rights said he was very concerned about the increase in the violation of the rights of girls all over the country.
For example, in the Department of Grand’Anse, during the period of confinement due to Covid-19, 40 underage students aged between 14 and 17 years old from the same school in the commune of Beaumont fell pregnant under conditions not yet elucidated. An investigation is underway to identify and apprehend the attackers for the necessary consequences.
The Departmental Initiative against Child Trafficking (IDETTE) and the Institute for Social Welfare and Research (IBESR), deplore the impunity that seems to enjoy certain sexual predators and reveal that at least sixty underage students from different schools were abused and became pregnant in the commune of Beaumont. IDETTE and INESR underline that these acts are generally committed by adult men, teachers and school principals who take advantage of the vulnerability of students to sexually exploit them…
In addition, the Grand’Anse Child Protection Working Group (GTPE/GA) reports the development of “Krèy” (sexual orgies) in the department.
In addition, according to data from the Ministry, young girl mothers engage in prostitution to support themselves and their child (ren).
