Early vowing and reproductive health - basic problems of rural women in the Municipality of Debar
Датум: 2/4/2011
 
In the rural areas of the municipality of Debar, especially in villages and Mogorce Broshtica there is a phenomenon of early vowing which is very serious and complex and threatens the basic human rights especially of girls in their early age by their parents. Namely, the early vowing and the arranged marriages between female and male children by their parents is a serious obstacle in achieving their right to education or successful completion of secondary education and further ambitions in life. In order to put greater emphasis on this very discriminatory phenomenon, to protect young people from this phenomenon which has negative consequences for their development and future life, the target group together with Antico’s local teams conducted local action with continuous activities, which contributed to act in parallel in raising public awareness among young girls and boys and their parents and the general public. Under the heading “Arranged marriages of underage girls - a real obstacle to the realization of human rights and gender equality” were organized and conducted 3 educational workshops and 2 panel discussions with 151 participants.

Through the conducted education the participants came to the conclusion that this phenomenon is particularly harmful and violates the rights of girls, because it is an obstacle and does not give them an opportunity to continue their education, gain greater confidence and economic independence. They have no right to make decisions in accordance with the will and aspirations, they are not entitled to their choice for their spouse and are limited since the early age of making decisions about their body and life.
 
For greater comprehensiveness of educating, within this local action, were printed 1000 leaflets that contain information on this current problem which is related not only to girls but also to boys and their parents.

The second local action implemented in the municipality of Debar, entitled “Education for reproductive health, a prerequisite for quality life and healthy family" included the lack of knowledge, the lack of awareness for reproductive health care and the need for responsible sexual behavior of men and women.
Within this action implemented are 4 educational workshops which were attended by 113 participants, and educators were sociologist and gynecologist. As part of the activities of this action was carried out meeting with the mayor to whom were presented the proposals on how to solve the obstacles that women face everyday in terms of health care.
