Dare to Dream
Dare to dream of a world free from female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C)!
We can all play a part however small in the fight to #endfgm
We have just launched an appeal for funds to pay for this year's annual alternative rite of passage ceremony (ARP) and Public Abandonment ceremony in North Pokot , a remote area of Pokot county where FGM rates are very high. In most villages almost 100% of the girls are cut, drop out of school are then married off.
These girls are practising their dances for the final day of celebration where they will join the rest of the community in declaring and end to FGM/C and early/child/forced "marriage" (ECFM) and will graduate to be considered mature responsible young adults but without any genital cutting.
The girls/young women can now dream of a future without FGM and can choose their own path in life.
Please help us to realise the dream of #nofgm you can donate vis this website:
£10 will pay for 2 girls to attend the camp for 1 day
£30 will pay for 1 girl for the week
£100 will pay for fund 30 girls for the week
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts on behalf of all the girls who will be saved from the cruelty of genital cutting and the horror of forced "marriage"
