Amref Flying Doctors
Globally, at least 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone some form of Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting and each year 4.1 milion girls are at risk. In order to stop girls from going through FGM/C, Amref Flying Doctors uses the Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP) approach. The ARP approach takes away the cut while retaining important aspects such as sexuality education, blessings by elders, and keeping girls in schools. It preserves and protects the good cultural values of communities. It provides the much needed life-skills to the girls while giving them a future. To this date: over 20.000 girls have went through an Alternative Rite of Passage and we're saved from the cut.
