Girls for leaders, Boys for Change program works with 55 schools in
communities that practice Female Genital Mutilation. We have over 5500
girls in the program and have engaged over 5000 boys and men who
champion to end Female Genital Mutilation in our area. This program
addresses cultural and logistical impediments to girls’ education to
increase their probability of staying in school. We encourage boys to
understand, respect and support the rights of girls and women.
Consequently, in 2020 we had a 99% transition rate in schools we work
with, and 10 villages declared FGM Free Zones.
