To Empower over 1000 girls affected by FGM in Kuria region, Kenya by Ggee foundation.
Welcome to Ggee Foundation
Ggee is founded in 2023 and registered as local & learning NGO working to end poverty and improve well being of the most marginalized in our community through ending all forms of violence against women and girls, improving access to education and breaking social-cultural barriers.
Our work during this period has involved delivering menstrual care to 1700 girls. For every $40 donated, we can provide 10 girls with menstrual care essential that includes (4 packets on sanitary towels & underwear) for 1 month. By providing menstrual care for girls, we can reduce the risk of Female Genital Mutilation by ensuring that girls’ education is not interrupted due to missing school due to menstruation.
The report shares more than 1,723 girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation in the Kuria region, rural Kenya. In this region, up to 35% of girls between the age of 9 to 18 years are subjected to Female Genital Mutilation. Although from the recent reports the number is suspected to be higher.
Female Genital Mutilation is the cutting of the female genital as a way to control the sexuality of girls and is considered a social norm in most communities.
