Involve men

Depending on the circumstances men need to be involved in the fight against the eradication of FGM. In this camp it looks like they came up with a very interesting initiative.

"Eradication of FGM/C in the Dadaab refugee camps was hampered by lack of support from men. The involvement of men in tackling the challenge is critical because they are the custodians of culture and gate keepers on religious issues."

Soccer ball and t-shirts with "I will mary an uncircumcised girl" on it were used to inform and educate the male community.
