Daniel and Zipporah Sindiyo started their efforts to eradicate FGM and early marriage among their own Maasai people in Kenya.
In 2007, with the help of some US Christians, they began work
among the Pokot people group of northwest Kenya. Viola Kamarua, a recent high school graduate, is a member of the Pokot group. She is one of the students whose lives have been transformed by education. In her village of Komolion, forty-four girls ages 12–20 were initiated into womanhood in a ceremony that explicitly rejected FGM. Hear this inspiring story and learn how you can help.
