Kuria Girls Project

“Kuria Girls Project” – (Supported by Global Fund for Children)

The project aims at ending female genital mutilation and child marriage in the Kuria community.

NIGEE aims to achieve this objective by working with the local community members and leaders to identify men who can spearhead culture change from within the community, especially among the Kuria Council of Elders, opinion leaders and older women.
