Talking Trees Project – phase II with Somali pastoralist communities in Garissa and Wajir counties


  • The Enduring Voices Foundation

Project summary

This second phase will mobilise the Somali communities in Garissa and Wajir counties to participate in public health engagement and research forums, leading to voluntary public declarations on the abandonment of FGM. 

This project will bring together researchers, health experts and Somali communities to discuss and develop an understanding of the discrepancies between modern science and traditional practices, and to share best practice from the first phase to help minimise maternal deaths from complications of FGM.
