E-WIN Visits traditional Ruler of Igga in Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu state
Yesterday, we had the incredible opportunity of meeting with the Traditional Ruler of Igga in Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu state at Ukuta Villa, HRH Igwe [Dr.] Herbert N. Ukuta JP to discuss on ending Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Uzo-Uwani a remote community in Enugu state.
The conversation was filled with hope and a shared commitment to protecting the health and rights of the girl child.
Key takeaways from our discussion.
- Traditional leaders play a crucial role in shaping community norms and attitudes towards FGM.
- Education and awareness-raising are essential to dismantling harmful practices.
- Community-driven solutions are key to achieving lasting change.
We are grateful to HRH Igwe [Dr.] Herbert N. Ukuta JP leadership and his willingness to collaborate on this important issue.
