The programme works to educate local populations so that they can then choose whether to abandon practices such as early forced marriage and female genital mutilation/cutting, or FGM/C. To date, 4,295 villages in Senegal have declared that they will no longer practice FGM/C. Keur Simbara, which has zero-tolerance for cutting, is one of the most active communities participating in Tostans empowerment programme. As the village women and children danced in celebration of health and human rights, the UNICEF Executive Director joined in, then warmly said goodbye. You are proof, he said, that the world can be changed by one community.
