‘I will not be circumcised because I have heard consequences of FGM in this campaign’, Joyce Wangwe, a standard three pupil at Rebu primary school says.
The campaign involves a senior doctor from the Tarime District Government Hospital Dr Placidia Rweyemamu who highlights common effects facing young girls in the area.
On her side the CDF's Legal Officer Ms Grace Mghamba says the campaign has come at the right time when many girls are lineup for circumcision in almost the entire district.
‘We are optimistic that we will serve a good number of girls from undergoing FGM because some have already promised to resist’, the official says.
Tarime is one of the areas in Tanzania where FGM is widely practiced despite the act is against the Tanzanian law.
