Community leaders and parents of KCE students have come together on their own to prohibit students from undergoing the female genital cutting "coming of age" ritual (FGC/FGM). This is an amazing piece of investigative reporting from Advocacy Project Peace Fellow Charlotte Bourdillon, who is spending 6 months at the Kakenya Center for Excellence. She probes into one of the most sensitive social issues in Maasai Kenya. Don't miss this, then consider a donation to support KCE.
