Challenge

THE PROBLEM IS FEMAL GENITAL MUTILATION (FGM) and GIRL-CHILD ABUSE on women of NAIROBI, KENYA. Our effort at enlightening and re-orientating the women of KANGEMI and KAYOLE communities in Nairobi, about their rights to "NO CIRCUMCISION" and to safe guade them. ICFA has been able to reach out to over 1000 Mothers, Children & the elderly through our rigorous Program tagged "CAMPAIGN AGAISNT GENITIAL MUTILATION & GIRL CHILD ABUSE"As a tradition in Kangemi and Kayole communities in Nairobi, Kenya.

Solution

This second phase of our campaign is highly capital intensive and we require as much financial support as possible. As well as technical assistance in terms of more professional social workers, Lawyers and Administrators. For us to forge ahead with this campaign, phase 2, which is the immediate medical treatment for one thousand (1,000) affected circumcised teenagers and young adults.

Long-Term Impact

Establish a Mediation and Legal Aids Centre, were young girls and women can seek refuge, take counsel and get legal assistance in the event of litigation. Also take legal actions on their behalf if they are willing and if necessary,but we are bias on the side of abolishing circumcision. From the statistics made available to us, it is estimated that over one hundred and seventy thousand (170,000) teenagers and young adults and even elderly are presently living with one form of health complication
