Ending FGM in Narok County titled Ailepu (Maa for Arise)

COVAW with support from Girl Generation (African Led Movement Programme) is implementing a one-year project on ending FGM in Narok County titled Ailepu (Maa for Arise).

The project aims at accelerating community-based efforts towards ending FGC through triggering an uprising of a diverse and inclusive youth-led anti-FGM movement in Narok who will influence and shape evidence-based anti-FGC campaigns that are geared towards sustainable solutions.
