Anti FGM Community Education
Knowledge on the existence, the extent and effects of the FGM and child marriage is generally missing in most communities more specifically the practicing ethnic groups. NAFGEM Tanzania uses multiple approaches to ensure communities are informed and actively engaged to transform their societies.
Through individual talks, meetings, seminars, workshops and community campaigns all social groups being local community leaders, traditional leaders, religious leaders, women, men, youths, influential community members and children receive anti-FGM/child marriage messages. Public events, radio programmes and play back videos are also used to reach the general public and trigger discussions which were earlier considered a taboo.
