To end female genital mutilation, we must engage our youth and children through education. We support an after school program a Children’s Rights Based literacy story telling program for children 8 to 14 years aimed at developing the knowledge, skills and talents of marginalized girls and children to promote literacy, access to rights through establishing a safe space for girls and children.
Our Story-time and reading sessions engage 300 weekly children aged 8 to 14 years through storytelling sessions involving learning from African stories of folk tales, fairy tales, adventure stories e.t.c to improve literacy and preserve our good cultural heritage and promote peaceful coexistence and cultural tolerance.
Through our story telling after school sessions, we inspire our children & girls to share their stories using their life experiences, and build public speaking skills and self-confidence they need to thrive. Elimika after school program bridges developmental gaps of children by teaching reading and comprehension through storytelling; with a focus on teaching on Children’s rights, values and demystifying harmful traditional cultural practices like Female Genital Mutilation , Child marriage and abuse
