We facilitate structured community dialogues; Intergenerational, young men, girls. One village at a time we are having the much needed conversations by demystifying myths and misconceptions on female genital mutilation as a social norm. To date we have engaged more than 1,000 young men, 600 women and men in structured community dialogues.
We organize annual marches and community events; in 2017 we organized the first annual Msichana began the End FGM community champions’ celebrations that celebrated positive action , brave community members who’ve stood up against the cut in their own special way and amplify stories of change to strengthen the movement.
