Stop Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Start the Alternative!
Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP)
Amref Health Africa runs anti-FGM campaigns in several African countries that have contributed to the decline of the practice. The campaigns offer alternatives to the ‘traditional’ ritual that young girls are forced to partake.
The Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP) is aimed at ending the FGM tradition and ensuring that young girls go to school and stay in school until they complete their education.
In Kenya alone, over 8,000 girls have graduated through the ARP initiative and many more continue to join the camps.
