Gambia: Gamcotrap Intensifies Community Outreach On FGM Laws in Nbr

The Gambia Committee on Harmful Traditional Practices Affecting the Health of Women and Children (GAMCOTRAP) recently embarked on series of community outreach on thematic issues relating to Female Genital Mutilation Laws enacted in 2015.

The community awareness forums were held in Lower Nuimi, Upper Nuimi and Jokadou districts, all in the North Bank Region.

Funded by the United Nations Fund for Population Affairs, the events were aimed at enlightening the people on laws promulgated to protect women from FGM, gender based-violence and early or forced marriages in The Gambia.
