This publication from FEMNET is part a behaviour change communication tool intended to expand the engagement of men in religious and cultural institutions to reach out to their communities to eradicate Female Genital Mutilation – FGM in Meru and Tharaka. The publication clarifies some of the common myths and misconceptions that perpetuate FGM. It opens space for dialogue between religious, cultural leaders and members of the community and promotes alternative rite of passage.
The project offers important lessons which will be documented and used to expand and inform interventions that seek to end FGM. We hope to contribute to the body of knowledge in by developing materials and tools that will be translated and used in targeting religious and cultural leaders.
