OUR END FGM CAMPAIGN

The campaign against FGM Campaign started in 2013. Our first aim was to get the message out that female genital mutilation (FGM) exists not only in Kenya, but also in many countries in Africa. UNICEF has finally recognized FGM as a problem beyond Africa in February 2016.

We keep on working with the goal of Ending FGM in One Generation. As we realized that one important step in this process is to produce data, we have created a survey tool-kit to help individuals and groups create their own small-scale surveys on FGM. Our experience has been that only scientific proof of the prevalence of FGM can move decision makers to recognize the problem.

Our second goal was to bring together activists against FGM from different communities and support their activities. We also joined a network of activists from 24 communities which reports high prevalence of FGM. The network was formed through a CSO Meeting that was supported by the Girl Generation. The Girl Generation supports the Network through their Grants for grassroots organizations a number of small activities in different countries.

Our campaign targets youths in and out of schools starting from the primary school to tertiary institutions, community outreaches through magnet theater, concerts ,drama festivals and forums(Elders, Women, and Men). This year our main campaign will be directed through the SAUTI YA MTOTO MUSIC TOUR which will bring young local musicians together and record ENDFGM Advocacy songs which will be used as a tool to educate communities on the effects of FGM and Early Child Marriages and travel across 10 counties holding concerts as a pilot project, this songs will also be used during community outreaches, schools outreaches and forums.

After Monitoring and Evaluation the Campaign the team will then find solutions to the gaps and have a proper planning and a way forward on what steps worked then start the second face of the campaign in 10 more counties.
