Walking the Path of Unity
This is part 1 of a 4 part film. In early 2008, the community of Diégoune in the Casamance region of Southern Senegal made the collective decision to promote the health of their children and abandon the practice of female genital cutting (FGC). 'Walking the Path of Unity' was produced by the community of Diégoune in collaboration with NGOs Tostan and Respect (Belgium) to share the news of their decision with Diola communities in Casamance, Senegal, and Worldwide. 'Walking the Path of Unity' has been selected for the UNICEF International Children's Rights Documentary Film Festival, held in November 2009 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
