Campaign Update

Eradicate the Ticket (FGM) to Child Early and Forced Marriage with Me

Posted October 8, 2018 from Tanzania
Small Girls of age between 8 and 9 years of age who undergo FGM, Marriade off and miiss out on education
Young girls who are supposed to be in school but whose lives are dictated by ailing traditional norms. Their rights are violated and they continue missing out on education which is key to self development. High levels of illiteracy among girls and women is still high and contributing to low-self esteem in women. Capacity Building on importance of education and other rights for girls and on key decision makers can make great changes

Am out to unyoke, uplift and empower the girl child from the throes of early childhood marriage and improve their live by providing them with safe shelter. I educate, advocate and empower girls and women.We have conducted workshops /training on women on harmful effects of FGM on girls. Those already trained are women.  FGM is practiced by women and is the ‘ticket’ to Child Early Forced Marriage. Most girls aged between 9 and 12 go through FGM after which they are viewed as young adults and are married off as mature and ready for motherhood

Early childhood marriage is a violation of the rights of children. FGM is a heinous practice rooted in most societies, the young women and girls are dying silently as they do not have safe spaces and voices to air out their agonising concerns. It is our singular duty to help end such practices that demean fellow women.

Dear Jacqueline, Yes, absolutely like you mentioned they need to get their rights, safe spaces and not have them violated. Again, thanks it is our duty to help end such practices.
