V-Day Safe Houses for the Girls in Kenya

The two V-Day Safe Houses for the Girls in Kenya in the towns of Narok and Sakutiek - were established for young women and girls fleeing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and early childhood marriage. Led by Agnes Pareyio, an internationally recognized leader, they provide a safe haven for girls escaping from FGM and early marriage - a place where young women can safely celebrate an alternative “rite of passage,” enabling Masai women to follow their tradition without undergoing the cut.

Agnes was named the United Nations in Kenya Person of the Year (2005) and she is the founder of the Tasaru Ntomonok Initiative. Her grassroots work with families, young girls, cultural leaders, and politicians in Kenya is actively reducing the rates of girls who undergo the cut. As a survivor of FGM, Agnes has dedicated her life providing safe alternative rites of passage into womanhood for Kenyan girls.
