Introducing myself and my journal

Voices of Hope
Posted March 4, 2013 from Kenya

About Me: "Voices of Hope" is a grassroots non-profit in Kenya that rescues girls and women from female genital mutilation and provides them with an alternative to FGM and forced marriage by educating them and providing them with leadership skills. To date we have rescued and educated 41 young women. It is the expectation that in return they will "pay it forward" by helping other girls and women. We do NOT have a hierarchy of PAID employees. We volunteer our time and our own money because we believe so strongly in what we do. Please email us at if you have any questions. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
