“I thank this project (FGM Free Generation Project) because it has come to save my two daughters from getting circumcised. We had only remained with two days to take them to Ngariba for circumcision as our traditions requires all girls and women to undergo circumcision. Since I got training from RUT, I changed my mind and share the information with my husband and together we agreed to stop circumcising our children".
