Can educating boys and men on the effects of Female Genital Mutilation be the solution to eradicating this vice?
Our research has shown that young men do not understand the effects of FGM or the implications of this retrogressive cultural practice to poverty and Sexual Reproductive Health of women. They are taught how important this practice is, how women need to behave,how women will treat them after undergoing the cut, how women will respect them,how they will earn respect amongst their peers if their wives,sisters or mother undergo FGM.We believe that by building the capacities of young men to speak up about FGM and actively participate to eradicate this practice,we will begin to see significant changes.Imagine having a community where boys and men are fighting for women’s rights?A community where boys are saying No to FGM?
A change in attitude is a confirmation to impact. Support us!
