Ending The FGM Movement, Greater Mara

Changing sociocultural norms requires a multi-pronged approach. The Maa Trust works in partnership with the Olare Motorogi Conservancy and neighbouring communities to develop and implement initiatives focused on improved livelihoods, holistic community development, and capacity building.

FGM is a devastating practice, one that is unfortunately still carried out in communities to this day. The Maa Trust trains and coordinates anti-FGM ambassadors within communities and facilitates a school education programme, and an alternative rite of passage programme, to break the stigma of FGM. The Maa Trust support and champion the youth to lead change in the abandonment of FGM, and facilitate community dialogue at different formal and informal forums.

Your donations will ultimately help bring this message to more communities and help to work towards ending this unnecessary practice once and for all.

Our Philosophy

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa.  Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.

Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.

We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions.   These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
