Rockflower is launching this campaign to raise funds and awareness for phase two of the Rockflower and Society for the Improvement of Rural People project partnership to reduce the female genital mutilation (FGM) prevalence rate in the Akwuke community of Enugu State from 85% to 45% over a twelve month period. This will have a direct effect on keeping girls in school.
The goal for this fundraising campaign is to build on the success of SIRP's efforts to engage men and boys in the push to end Female Genital Mutilation and prevention of child marriage, thereby keeping girls in school.
We will raise $2,600 to cover the cost of training and sensitization for:
10 traditional and religious leaders
15 family heads, elders and opinion leaders
15 Youth activists
The End Female Genital Mutilation and Keep Girls in School is being led by Youth Advisory Board member, Rex Ward.
