  1. Keep up the great work. @beyond_fgm facebook page beyondfgm , working at grassroots in Pokot to end FGM. Our strategy is to bring the anti FGM message directly to the communities affected. These people are marginalised, poverty stricken and therefore being left behind in development. They have no access to modern media which means it is vital to take the message to the grassroots.

    1. Thank you!

      Have you met Dorcas?
      She studied in Pokot, and might be happy to meet you.
