County First Lady Calls for Support in Eradicating GBV including FGM

"Many individuals have been affected physically, socially and psychologically by GBV including FGM and we need to strongly advocate against it in our society. It's only when we realize and acknowledge that GBV including FGM is a practice that is meant to alienate individuals; that only derails development and interferes with how God created us. Personally, I've decided to be in the forefront to advocate against GBV and FGM included as I've witnessed how it negatively impacts individuals trickling down to the community," stated H.E Scovia Chebet Kachapin
