Female Genital Mutilation and Child Marriage
Baseline Study Report on FGM and Child Marriage among the Rendille, Maasai, Pokot, Samburu and Somali Communities in Kenya
This baseline study report on female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) and child marriage among the Rendille, Maasai, Pokot, Samburu and Somali communities in Kenya is the outcome of extensive interviews and discussions with community members— including community leaders, representatives of young people and women in the target sub-counties and divisions, national government ministries, departments and agencies,
county government ministries and departments, local and international non-governmental organizations, faith-based organizations and community-based organizations.
It is expected that the study findings presented in this report will provide the basis of interventions in the target sub-counties and divisions towards ensuring accelerated abandonment of the twin practices of FGM/C and child marriage.
