Ms Jane Babiiha Alisemera said the schools will be built in Amdat, Bukwo and Kapchorwa districts to protect girls from the culture of female circumcision .
She said the government is aware that the plan to abolish female circumcision has been met with a lot of resistance but said with the continuous sensitisation of girls, there are indicators that many of them are responding to the call of abandoning the culture.
The Uganda parliamentary Association was in Mbale to sensitise stakeholders about the new law that prohibits female circumcision. The sensitisation meeting drew participants from 10 districts from eastern Uganda.
