We had a two weeks radio jingle on BK Radio and a one-talk show that was held on which involved sheikh Mohamed Ali of Pangani Muslim community mosque and Bishop Ken Senelwa of Voice of Trumpet. The message is the religious upbringing of our children does not include FGM in the holy books.
My project was about what activists, the community, chiefs, and reformed cutters are doing to end FGM.
By Lawi M. Murangiri, Anti FGM radio show on Getu Fm Fm Radio Station that Broadcasts in Kimeru Language. The people involved in the show include: LAWI M. MEEME- Local…
This time we Engaged more girls and women for they are the survivors of FGM. We also engaged boys and male youths for they are the future husbands so they must understand the concept of FGM and be part of the guard towards achieving zero FGM.
My project was about Cross border FGM from Kenya to Tanzania. I went to Namanga/Tanzania with a team of four other people. We got to engage with authorities from both Kenya and Tanzania, parents who have transported their children to Tanzania for FGM as well as brokers who are paid to transport the girls to Tanzania for the cut.
We used our campaign to sensitize the community on upholding the rights of the girl child against FGM in Wajir County. This is done through the wajeer FM radio with wide coverage and going in the local Somali dialect.
With the support of the global media campaign to end FGM, we held a TV talk show on NDIZI TV, a local television with a reach of approximately 700,000 in Kisii, Nyamira, Nairobi, and parts of Migori, Homa Bay, Kericho, and Bomet.
The project entails the rising and rampant cases of Teenage pregnancy and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) among school-going girls across the County, I wish to carry out a campaign on a strategy to end teenage pregnancy and Female genital mutilation by making frequent visits to the rural areas and also create awareness through media address to local radio stations because most of the people affected come from those parts of the County.
Theme: “ Sensitization and Education Awareness Creation on the FGM practicing community on the Education, Health and Economic Advancement on the African women and girls.”
Our project was both media and community engagement activity, we involved North Rift Rift Radio in our media campaign and our local surveillance group in Otiot village in Marus sub-location for sensitization. The reason why we engaged North Radio is that it is the most listened to radio station in West Pokot and the most popular in places where we work with high FGM/CM prevalence.
