Engaging Schools on Female Genital Mutilation and Forced Marriage

This guide has been prepared by the CREATE Youth-Net partners, who all have vast experience in facilitating student sessions and engaging schools on female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage. The guide is intended to be used by school staff and education professionals to engage on the
issues of FGM and forced marriage. The guide provides basic information about both FGM and forced marriage; gives an overview about the importance of schools engaging on the issues; highlights some key principles and considerations; provides suggestions for effective schools engagement on the issues; and finally provides guidance on how to respond to and deal with disclosures.
