enditnow: In Kenya, Girls Say No to FGM
Tuesday, December 8, 2009
SILVER SPRING, Md. —In Kenya, where Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) remains a serious problem, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is implementing a project that is changing the attitudes and behavior towards the procedure in practicing communities within the country’s western and northeastern regions.
ADRA’s Anti-FGM project addresses the dangerous effects that FGM, also called Female Genital Cutting (FGC), has on young women and girls in communities where the procedure is currently practiced.
As a form of gender-based violence, FGM is one of the most critical issues addressed by enditnow™, an ongoing campaign co-sponsored by ADRA and the Women’s Ministries Department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The enditnow™ campaign works to end violence against women and girls around the world.
FGM involves the removal of all or part of a girl’s, or woman’s external genitalia for any of a number of reasons, varying from a desire to control a perceived risk of marital infidelity, as a rite of passage into womanhood, or to meet certain religious or social expectations.
