The Sacrificed Generation

Lesley A. Sharp

University of California Press

This chapter discusses adults' assumptions versus the lived realities of Ambanja's school youth, where television, discotheques, and video cinemas are believed to corrupt the lives of unsupervised migrant school youth. It studies the students' opinions on sexuality, where foreign aid—especially in the form of “population control”—emerges as a neocolonial agenda. This chapter also emphasizes the gendered nature of urban dangers in Ambanja and its social and educational consequences.

Keywords:   lived realities, school youth, Ambanja, sexuality, population control, foreign aid, neocolonial agenda, gendered nature, urban dangers, educational consequences
