Over 200 million girls worldwide have undergone female genital mutilation
Sifa Kaite, Child Protection Coordinator, JRS Chad, tells us about the issues that girls in Chad face today. Issues, like female genital mutilation (FGM), which involve the violation of their rights.
“In terms of female genital mutilation, it is a prohibited practice in Chad, but people continue to do it in secret. There is an entire process involving parents and people very close to parents before FGM can be performed. How can a girl, a minor, report all these people to the authorities? It’s really quite difficult”.BACK
