Enhancing community approaches to ending Female Genital Mutilation.
This one year project by the AAIU Kapchorwa Cluster seeks to end FGM and violation of human rights through awareness creation. ActionAid engages different actors such as religious leaders, elders, cultural leaders, surgeons, mentors, youths, victims and survivors among others to end FGM.
The project is based on the fact that FGM, besides being outlawed is a violation of human rights and in particular, women rights.
The project focused on Kapchorwa and Kween districts with more focus in Kween district during the resurgence of FGM at the end of 2018 and start of 2019.
