I want to sensitize young women and girls about their human rights, as a way of motivating them to take the lead in putting an end to harmful traditional practices like FGM/c and Child Marriage that we are subjected to, especially in Africa. This will greatly impact family and communities like mine that embrace such practices, because it will help creat awareness among families that make up the community.
I tend to involve young people because we are the ones that undergo the unreversed harm, and we are the ones that would be living the future. Therefore, we should be given the right to decide on how we want our world to be like. Again, most African families tend to listen to their own relatives more than outsiders. Therefore, we will be able to make a huge difference if we involve young people that will go home at the end of the day and tell their families that what you are doing is wrong!
Lastly, most young people, especially girls are the most vulnerable in the society. Therefore, thinking about them and giving them the opportunity to make changes and determine their own fate will be a sign of hope for them.
