    Criminals in Democratic Republic of Congo’s North Kivu province have long preyed on major roads, committing killings, kidnappings, and robberies of travelers. In May 2016, however, vehicles from the DRC military began accompanying regular convoys of commercial and passenger vehicles on two main routes, and crime on these slow-moving convoys has been nearly nonexistent. “I had given up traveling, as I feared for my personal safety,” says Abiner Kiveho, a regular user of the Kirumba-Goma road. “Everything works well today, and I am not scared anymore to travel.”⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Merveille Kavira Luneghe, GPJ DRC⠀ ⠀

Etienne Anel sells prescription medication on the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital city, and says that people come to him all day long, cash in hand, in search of pain medication, anti-inflammatory pills and more. But the lower prices and more flexible purchasing options that street vendors provide come at a cost. Read the full story on our website.⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Anne Myriam Bolivar, GPJ Haiti ⠀ ⠀

    Paddington Khumalo has been living with the mother of his 3-year-old daughter for five years but has not married her yet, because her family won’t allow it. Like many other young men here, he hasn’t been able to afford the traditional bride price. While bride prices vary greatly in Zimbabwe, the requested amount in his case is six head of cattle or cash equal to about $3,000. “Some people have turned the payment of the bride price into a business,” Khumalo says. “They want to gain from the mere fact that you set your eyes on their daughter.” ⠀ ⠀ Read the full story on the Global Press Journal website! ⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Fortune Moyo, GPJ Zimbabwe⠀ ⠀

    "In the beginning, nobody in the village used to believe that we could earn money from making bags in this way," says Ganga Kumari Rana, a small business owner. For the first time, the Nepalese government legally recognizes micro-entrepreneurs, and allows female micro-entrepreneurs to register their businesses for free, avoiding the usual 50,100-rupee (about $489) fee. Will these new subsidies and tax waivers for women entrepreneurs level the playing field in Nepal?⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Kalpana Khanal, GPJ Nepal⠀ ⠀

    In Zambia, child sexual abusers face a maximum sentence of life in prison, but the rise in cases suggests that the stiff punishment has not deterred offenders. With more than 2,000 cases of sexual abuse against children registered last year, nongovernmental organizations and civil-society groups are working to remove bail as an option for accused child sex offenders in an effort to curb this crime.“ Court cases take too long, and once the offender is out there on bail, the victim might feel discouraged and stop attending court process, especially if they have no support. Then the offender would be free,” says Florence Nkhuwa, chief executive officer for Lifeline/Childline Zambia. ⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Prudence Phiri, GPJ Zambia⠀ ⠀

    Sri Lankans are plagued by tens of thousands of cases of mosquito-borne dengue each year, but recent public-health measures have helped dramatically reduce the death rate of this year’s particularly bad outbreak, where more than 140,000 cases and 320 deaths were reported from January to early August. “The quick information-sharing has helped us to identify mosquito breeding areas very effectively,” says says K. C. R. Kaushalya, one of seven public-health inspectors at the Dehiwala Health Ministry Office. “We would have seen double or triple the number of dengue patients, if this system of monitoring and follow-up was not in place.”⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Manori Wijesekera, GPJ Sri Lanka⠀ ⠀
