Young girls trained as anti-FGM ambassadors

'This illustrates how many Sabiny girls are determined to take FGM next year despite President Museveni prohibiting the practice and describing FGM as crude, outdated and an infringement on the rights of the girl-child.
For Mr. Samson Chelimo her father, the fact that the words were coming from his own daughter, was a shock in itself. Why? Sabiny girls are not supposed to respond to their fathers and elders in this form; they are expected to sit a distance away from their parents, listen, and do whatever the elders have decided.'
