Safe Initiation & Circumcision project / No more unsafe Rural Illegal Circumcision pract

Safe Initiation & Circumcision project
Safe Initiation & Circumcision project
Safe Initiation & Circumcision project

Hundreds of young men are in agony after botched, ill conceived circumcisions performed by charlatans.

Thousands are hospitalized with sepsis, genital mutilation, gangrene, dehydration and even penile amputations

Hundreds die

Many deaths and mutilations go unreported

If we can make the process of initiation and circumcision safer, and stamp out the illegal initiation schools then we are taking giant steps to solve the problem

If we can save the lives and end the suffering of these young men, then we would have achieved success

We run projects to highlight the problem of circumcision related fatalities and mutilation in rural areas
