#artsinadvocacy #endfgm Equality Now was proud to partner with Kenya’s Ministry of Education Science and Technology to act as a judge in the 57th Annual Kenyan National Drama Festival from March and April 2017. Students from Naikarra Primary School in Narok were hailed for their performance of an anti-female genital mutilation piece during the festival.
Our End Harmful practices Program Manager, Mary Wandia, attended and said, “The students are at a point where they are forming their norms. So when we start reaching them at that age then we will manage to shift the norms that perpetuate #FGM and "child marriage." By encouraging arts in advocacy, we're continuing to raise community awareness around human rights violations. #maasai #JusticeforGirls
