Young Kenyan girls are being sexually enslaved.
Girls – as young as ten – are married off to much older men as child brides. They are mutilated, raped, and traded as prizes.
Before their wedding day, they undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Although this practice violates international law and Kenya’s constitution, local chiefs and communities continue this barbaric abuse with virtual impunity.
We’re helping rescue these young girls and place them in safe schools. Our African office is educating the local communities about protecting their children, fighting to hold corrupt officials accountable, and working in numerous court cases to ensure that the perpetrators of this child abuse are brought to justice.
Now we’re taking the plight of these young girls directly to the United Nations.
As we work on the ground and in the courts in Kenya, we need your voice. Take action with us.
