By Ali Mohammed,
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.
The panelist included a medical professional doctor and an FGM survivor who was a vocal youth speaker and community mobiliser. The other panelist also included the FGM activist who shared a wide range of information including the progress in the fight against FGM, the government laws on FGM, etc.
Wajir Community Radio has the widest coverage of listeners approximately 250,000 in NEP Counties.
The community especially the parents are ready to fight against FGM and needs support from the government to condemn the harmful practices.
Increase the awareness through the media and bring onboard different groups to share their experience.
