계속되는 분쟁으로 신음하는 케냐 어린이의 보건, 교육 환경

* Ongoing violence imperils health, education for Kenyan children

The atrocious violence that swept through Kenya after December’s disputed presidential election has meant untold misery for children.

Hundreds of thousands of children have been displaced, now forced to live in bleak camps and tents across the country.

The violence erupted as children sought to begin their new school year. Typically a sanctuary for millions of Kenyan children, this new education year commenced with burning schools, teachers in hiding far from their classrooms, and students fleeing homes as their precious books and uniforms were turned to ashes.

SOUNDBITE (Swahili): Elizabeth Wanjiku, 8: “There was a doll that my sponsor had given me, it got burnt. My school shoes burnt, my school books burnt, my other clothes also burnt. I felt really bad, I felt like I wanted to kill myself.”

Tonight thousands of Kenyan children will sleep with these nightmares, hungry and in crowded rooms. When they wake, many have no schools to go to.

But amid the turmoil, UNICEF is ensuring protection and normalcy for as many children as it can. Education is providing a means.

Safe now and back at a UNICEF-supported school on the edge of Nairobi’s biggest slum, young Pinto Omondi has some advice for his country’s leaders.

SOUNDBITE (English): Pinto Omondi, 13: “They burnt a market just behind our school. Now where do we buy food from? But we cannot learn without mistakes – they have done it this time. But next time let us look for a better way.

Wait for justice, or through court of laws, but not burning people or killing others.”

While the mediation talks in Kenya continue, the children wait. Attacks persist, while the number of rape cases grow, a huge risk for girls such 13 yr old Tabitha Muthoni.

SOUNDBITE (English): Tabitha Muthoni, 13: “I don’t feel safe because we are next to those who fight. I just want to go back to school.”

It’s a hope shared by children across Kenya. A hope that their country quickly returns to peace and that they are able to return to school.
