Now girls know their rights

A three-year partnership in three districts in Mara Region set out to mobilise multiple stakeholders to promote the rights of girls and young women to be safe from FGM and child marriage, and to enable them to access education. Child marriage and FGM gained national attention during the project phase, resulting in an increase in actors and actions to address these issues.
The project approach was based on the partnership and active involvement of the girls themselves, as well as stakeholders at both the local and national level, which proved instrumental to project achievements.
