All of this is very encouraging.We recently received the sixth episode of Our Africa by Merck Foundation, which starts a discussion on the adverse effects of FGM on girls and women, as well as supporting girlhood.We must be aware that FGM does not have any health benefits, but only harms girls and women both physically and psychologically.FGM can also result in reproductive complications in women, such as infertility, because FGM infections are one of the major causes of infertility.FGM also raises the risk of HIV infection and can result in significant complications during childbirth.

This behavior must be stopped immediately.Dr RashaKelej said that empowerment girls with the right education is the only solution to these age stereotypes, which also perpetuates gender imbalance.The show is re-run on KTN, Kenya, on Wednesday @ 6:30 p.m. (EAT); NTV Uganda, on Thursday @ 4:00 p.m. (EAT); GH One TV, Ghana; re-run on Monday @ 1:30 p.m. (GMT) Watch the promo of Our Africa by Merck Foundation During the episode, the singer featured a new album produced to support Girl Education.In this episode, fashion designers from Senegal-SafietouSeck and Aicha Fatou Gaye-appeared, presenting their designs with sharp and timely graphics about stopping FGM.FGM is a procedure that involves altering or injuring the female genitalia for non-medical purposes and is treated internationally as a violation of human rights, the health, and the integrity of girls and women.

Although most of the cases are concentrated in 30 African and Middle Eastern countries, female genital mutilation is a widespread issue, and it is also practiced in other Asian and Latin American countries.I strongly believe that education is one of the most important aspects of women empowerment and that it can actually help in reducing unpopular practices such as FGM.We support young girls who are marginalized but gifted in other African countries to continue their education by implementing our Educating Linda program.The aim of the initiative is to give these girls the opportunity to pursue their passions and fulfil their potential by means of education.Senator Kelej said that the Merck Foundation has released many inspiring childrens storybooks and songs to promote girl education.
