Continuing to Champion Girls' Rights

Dear Friend,

Thank you for continuing to be a part of our global community. Our work in local Tanzania wouldn't be possible without this incredible network.

Our latest reports have shown that 52 girls are staying at Butiama while 84 girls are staying at Mugumu. We're continuing to support their education either through formal education (primary and secondary school), vocational training, or hotel management and hospitality. Our counseling sessions have also been successful, with each girl having the choice of joining individual or group sessions. We've developed a home garden in Mugumu and Butiama through our ongoing agricultural activities. We have also been educating girls on reproductive health, and through that process, we have started producing pads. We purchased 6 sewing machines and have created over 200 pads so far. Our Digital Champions have reported at least 7 cases of gender-based violence, and at least 12 cases are being processed through legal systems.

We've conducted work beyond our safe houses as well. In celebration of International Women's Week, we hosted a virtual careers event that brought together a number of women working across industries, including aviation and wildlife. We have also hosted an event for mapping regions of Tanzania to support our local rescue operations. We are always looking for new ways to continue growing our network, expanding our horizons, and championing gender equality together.

We are continuing to facilitate rescue operations, community education, and reconciliation. We've made many strides but these practices are still embedded in our local regions. We hope that you continue to be a part of our journey as we strive to end female genital mutilation in its entirety.

Thank you!
