THE dangers of female genital mutilation will be taught in classrooms in content to be designed by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.

“The campaign must now move to the classroom, to the syllabus, to the curriculum and everywhere if the practice is to be eliminated in one generation. It must be inculcated and internalised as early as possible,” Gender PS Zeinab Hussein said.

She was speaking at the KICD headquarters in Nairobi during a one-day workshop organised by Amref to develop content campaigns aimed at fighting FGM.
