A Community Education journey is planned for March 1-16, 2012. 

A group will travel to a remote village in Isiolo District, Kenya. The first stop will be at a school to discuss child rights, and girl child education with the students.  The students will have an opportunity to discuss how they feel about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Early Forced Marriage (EFM).  Then community meetings for women and men will be held separately.  The laws a written in the new constitution forbidding FGM, EFM before the age of 18 and mandating girl child education will be discussed as well as the reasons behind the mandates.

This is an open journey, though limited in numbers.  If you are interested in participating in this Service Journey, please email
