(+) THE CUT AND EARLY MAR­RIAGE

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

In Kenya, sev­eral com­mu­ni­ties still prac­tice FGM and early mar­riage, de­spite ef­forts by the Anti-FGM Board and other stake­hold­ers fight­ing it. Once they are cut, most of the girls are mar­ried off at an early age and de­nied rights to go to school. Res­cue cen­tres have shel­tered girls who have run away from or been res­cued from FGM and early mar­riages.
