“I just want to complete my University education and set an example for other girls in my village not to succumb to this practice of FGM” says 21 year old Bettina Naina, the first born in a family of six girls in Kuria, Migori County. Bettina is at the verge of dropping out of her second year in Rongo University due to lack of fees and seeks to at least sit for her end year examinations.

With the support of her father Joseph Naina who sold all his cows and tried to raise funds from friends and family to educate her.  Bettina is among the lucky girls to escape the cut in her community, as a result, Joseph and his family have been shunned and ostracized by their clan and community who now regard them as outcasts. An expensive price to pay for not undergoing the cut.

They now live in constant fear of attack from their community and threats of forcefully circumcising Bettina and her sisters. Their efforts to reach out to their family and community members to help raise funds for her to complete her education have hit the wall. They are now regarded as betrayers of their culture and even the few fundraisers Bettina’s father tries to organize are disrupted.

Bettina’s zeal to complete her education is admirable.   You can be part of helping her achieve her dream of being an ‘uncut’ and educated Kuria girl by contributing funds to this course. This could help the four out of every five girls who cannot complete education in the area.[1]With as little as Ksh.100 you could help Bettina and her sisters attend school and complete their studies.
