I have grown all my life knowing that female circumcision is vital in our lives all through. I had never been told that there are people who are not circumcised and the dangers of FGM. Today I leave CIFORD a changed person who will change the community. Juliet Mukiri from maburwa Primary school said that in a community over 90% of girls go through the female Circumcision and it’s the high time I change that Thank you CIFORD and your partners for supporting me attend this seminar.

ROADSHOWS/PARADES

On Friday 25th parents (community members, staff, and girls) conducted a roadshow along the Muriri-Isiolo road showing confidence and rebuking FGM practice through songs and dances.
