LATEST VISIT TO ORTUM, POKOT

Updated: Oct 12

I travel to Kenya on Nov.24th with one of my UK midwifery colleagues, Sue Knowles.

We are planning a second “Alternative Rite of Passage” ceremony in early December following last year’s success. Follow-up by “Kepsteno Rotwo” (abandon the knife) group members, found that of 175 girls who attended last year’s ceremony, only 3 girls subsequently went to be circumcised. Obviously this is 3 too many but overall a huge success.


We had lots of fun at a recent fund raiser in my home town of Grange-over-Sands with top radio 4 comedian, Jeremy Hardy. This along with other fund raising events helps enormously to assist our Kenyan project to abandon FGM. Thanks for continuing support. This is a team effort!
