Girls in Kajiado stands against FGM, They decided to fight!

In Kajiado County, young girls are beginning to fight against the brutal rite of female circumcision. It started with one girl, 13-year-old Damaris Naishorua, who stood against tradition and refused to get undergo FGM. The girls are now taking charge and even reporting their parents to authorities if they threaten to mutilate and marry them off. More than 200 in Sajiloni girls graduated from the alternative rite of passage, they made that transition to adult hood without undergoing FGM. <3.
