Alternative Rites of Passage
Every year thousands of girls are forced to undergo female genital mutilation and forced early marriage. A number of NGOs led by World Vision have started an annual campaign to raise awareness on the ills of such practices. This year hundreds of girls underwent a one week intensive training on alternative rites of passage and graduated in a colorful ceremony. Our girls band usually leads the girls graduating during the alternative rite of passage. One girl at a time we shall win this battle.
