VILLAGERS VOW TO FIGHT FGM
Villagers among them women have strongly vowed to fight FGM by supporting anti FGM initiatives which includes forming club groups.
This was in a workshop by Micontrap for parents who were against FGM practice in Iraha location, Mabera division in Kuria West district. 
Mother in the workshop agreed to form ‘Wamama wa Kimila’ to work against communicators who spearheaded initiatives for the cut as well as making public declaration through demonstrations aimed at gaining advantage over the practice of FGM. 
The villagers also overwhelmingly endorsed the school based approach which used videos to advocate against FGM in schools. 
In the 17 member workshop, the parents admitted that despite the strides they were making towards doing away with the vice, they encountered a myriad of challenges that were a drawback to the progress.
The villagers said that parents and children were sometimes forced to escape at night to evade the cut forcing them to endanger themselves by travelling long distances at night to distant rescue camps.
It was also realized that most girls who shunned the cut for education were forced to stop along the way due to lack of fees, a condition that they said promoted FGM and early marriages.
To confirm their anti FGM pledge, the villagers vowed in unison not to attended FGM celebrations as it was against the spirit of rejection of the practice.
