In partnership with UNFPA Kenya and World VisionKenya, we were able to train 66 additional male champions in Kajiado County. The training targetted hard-to-reach villages that still have a high prevalence of FGM and child marriage. Each training was for three days and it was followed by a community dialogue targetting 50 community members. The trained champions led the dialogues and they were able to speak to women and other men on the need to eradicate the vices of FGM, child marriage, and teen pregnancies.
We have attached links to two testimonials/ success stories from this training. These are published on our website and will give more insights on the dialogues and also a preview on the changing attitudes and mindsets.
