INVOLVING MEN IN THE FIGHT TO END FGM

This is an important vital part of our work as in most families in Pokot where FGM prevails men remain the decision makers so that they decide when a girl is ready for "circumcision" and then marriage. The girl will be sold and married off to a much older man , not of her choosing. She will then drop out of school and begin the life of a wife and mother whilst still a child herself.

Watch carefully you will see the Senior Elder throw the knife after having cursed it and persuaded the community to #endfgm . He then performs a cleansing ritual as he encourages the parents to send their children to school.
