Testimonials

The girls during the past viva training reported that so far they feel that fights against FGM is almost won.This is because of regular trainings that have empowered them and can stand to say no if someone raises issues about taking them through FGM. There arouse a challenge that there are arising cases of married women who are being forced by their spouses to undergo FGM.This is a small percentage as per now .Generally the girls are happy that they have enough knowledge and courage to stand and say No to FGM.
