Guild Project for 2017 - 2018 - Breaking the Cycle of FGM (Feed the Minds)
Your support can help to empower women and girls in Kenya to fight the horrendous practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), so they can stay
In school and reach their God-given potential. Your actions and prayers will be able to help girls like Bridget, “I want to stay in school, I do not want to be forced to marry or have children I am going to become a great lawyer and work on laws to combat FGM”
According to the World Health Organisation over 125 million girls and women across 29 countries, including Scotland, alive today, have been cut. FGM is the partial or total removal of the external genitalia for non-medical reasons. Seen as a rite of passage, it is carried out on girls of 12 years, sometimes younger. It can lead to severe problems and even death. Survivors tend to drop out of school, are married off and give birth, all before 16. In the Kuria district of Kenya, where Feed the Minds works, complex cultural and social reasons make FGM hard to combat. Nevertheless we are committed to promoting a culture of change to ensure every girl can choose her own future and to stop the innocent becoming victims.
