Litigating Female Circumcision In Kenya



This project involves training and deployment of monitors in rural areas of Kenya to report cases of FGM to us and we take legal action to protect the victims.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Young girls under the age of 18 are being subjected to this harmful cultural practice. They get injured or drop out of school or married off at a very tender age. They need legal protection from this.

How will this project solve this problem?

Using legal action to save girls from being circumcised.

Potential Long Term Impact

To protect and save young girls from the horrors of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and safe guard their future and the retention of their bodily integrity.
