Accroître les possibilités d’éducation pour les réfugiés : La communauté internationale unit ses for

HCR 8 October 2018

NEW YORK – Lorsqu’elle a quitté le Rwanda avec sa famille en 2001 pour devenir une réfugiée au Malawi, Amélie Fabian, alors âgée de six ans, était déterminée à ne pas manquer l’école. Au Malawi, elle a dû supplier ses parents pour qu’ils la laissent aller en classe. Parce qu’elle était étrangère, elle subissait les brimades des autres élèves et des enseignants. Elle a dû changer d’école à plusieurs reprises. « Pas une seule fois je n’ai envisagé de laisser tomber », se rappelle Amélie Fabian.

Ses excellentes notes lui ont permis de faire partie des 80 étudiants réfugiés autorisés à poursuivre des études universitaires au Canada dans le cadre du Programme d’étudiants réfugiés de ce pays. Après avoir décroché ses diplômes à l’Université McGill de Montréal, Amélie Fabian a récemment commencé à travailler comme comptable pour Deloitte, un cabinet d’audit et de conseil.

« J’attends avec impatience le jour où mon histoire ne sera plus l’exception, mais sera devenue la norme », dit Amélie Fabian. « La communauté internationale doit faire davantage pour offrir aux enfants réfugiés, surtout aux filles, l’éducation qu’ils méritent ».
