Thousands of girls in Kenya are still vulnerable to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Securing the future for girls in Kenya means tackling FGM from multiple angles, and this is exactly how ADRA Kenya’s AAFGM project works. The project seeks to empower girls and women for the abandonment of FGM, while building the capacity of community leaders on child-centered approaches that lead to elimination of the practice. This involves church-based approach, which has seen multiple churches introduce anti-FGM curriculum into their teachings and services. Our team also works in conjunction with the Area Advisory Councils and local county authorities in educational workshops, and alternative rites of passage ceremonies.
