Compassion CBO opens office in Nairobi

Thanks to a grant by Amplify Change to support a new Anti-FGM hotline, Compassion CBO has opened an office in Nairobi.

 From the new office Compassion CBO will be running a Kenya-wide Anti-FGM Hotline and educational seminars.

"We wish to end FGM by convincing people of its dangers in a well thought out and thorough manner that will change attitudes in the long term. By setting up representatives with mobile phones and advertising the numbers as an anti-FGM hotline, we would be able to help girls and women access information, receive assistance in cases of coercion or when FGM has been carried out, without these women having to face potentially hostile authority figures or having any stigma attached to themselves. - Evanson Njeru, founder of Compassion CBO

The Anti-FGM hotline is part of a large educational campaign to bring awareness about FGM. Which includes meetings and seminars at schools.
