Project: Emmanuel Center Girls Camp
GIRLS CAMP TO PREVENT FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION, Tanzania
During the time of year when most FGM rituals are performed in Gamsara, Tanzania, the Emmanuel Center for Women and Children will run a camp for girls that offers an alternative.
At the camp, girls will learn about their options and opportunities beyond FGM and early marriage. The Center aims to direct girls and their families away from FGM and empower them to protect their bodies and futures.
The Emmanuel Center is a Methodist-run community organisation that provides a safe haven, resources and initiatives to support the empowerment of women and their families. They offer community education and development projects that improve the lives of women and children in areas of income empowerment, health, and basic rights.
