Meet Kenya's Collins Orono. He produces three programmes that focus on children. All the programmes air on National TV in Kenya and focus on advancing the voice of the child on issues that affect them, especially harmful cultural practices like FGM.
Zinduka has been at the forefront in implementing programs targeting the empowerment of women and girls through awareness creation on FGM, child marriages, education/sponsorship of vulnerable girls, and other gender-related issues.
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.

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.”
