Networking with Women Groups

NETWORKING VISIT TO GOCESO WOMEN GROUP - KURIA

Monday, 07 October 2019 09:29

Visiting GOCESO women Network was one of the most eye opening experiences we have had in the diversity of the practice of FGM.
As much as numbers prove the Gusii community to be ahead in the practice in Kuria still the practice happens in the open with open community celebrations still carried on.
These women, though illiterate have managed to come together under 52 women groups to form a CBO and have challenged the practice through teaching people on it's effects in almost all community meetings and pursuing cases of #FGM through paralegals.
The have managed to save a number of girl from the cut and they offer the safe custody in their homesteads until re-integration with their families.
We shared on the success stories and learnt greatly on their best practices towards #EndFGM which we will adopt in the fight against #FGM.
