Protection for 451 Kuria girls against FGM

February 6th, 2019
Protection for 451 Kuria girls against FGM in Tanzania

February 6 is the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Many girls in sub-Sahara Africa grow up knowing that FGM is their foreland. FGM has lifelong repercussions for the women and girls who underwent it. It is not only a breach of the law, but a violence of their rights. That is why Terre des Hommes Netherlands stands up for these girls, specifically for girls in the Kuria community in Northern Tanzania. In the just concluded ‘cutting season’, 451 Kuria girls have been protected against FGM through the rescue centre of our partner ATFGM.
