- Towards the Elimination of FGM: Communication for Change
This curriculum was designed for trainers of public health workers, community organizers, youth advocates, and teachers. It draws on materials developed by many organizations and represents the culmination of several years of study, program implementation, and evaluation in the area of female genital mutilation (FGM). Its basic premise is that the discontinuation of FGM must be addressed at the community level. Its purpose is to introduce community workers to the concept of “communication for change” and to inspire and transfer skills for community-based approaches to problem-solving. The curriculum was field-tested in Kenya and Somalia. It is available as one large file or as several smaller files for easier downloading.
