Nevertheless, the state is at the same time starting up projects dedicated to give children education, safety and a better standard of living which makes the state, according to me, less responsible for the difficult situation. The state is hindered in its work by the illegal armed groups. I also discuss how the state simultaneously fails in fulfilling their social agenda, which is a very negative aspect of the work of the state. (Less)
