NGO Closes Down Due to Lack of Funding

The Reproductive Education and Community Health, a NGO that has spearheading the campaign against female genital mutilation, has suspended activities, citing lack of funding

A Ugandan NGO that has been spearheading the campaign against female genital mutilation (FGM) in Sebei and Karamoja has suspended activities, citing lack of funding.

The Reproductive Education and Community Health, executive director, Beatrice Chelengat, says the organisation has not received funds from that country’s government and donors since the beginning of the year, despite the numerous pledges.

Chelengat says they have budgeted for 400 million Ugandan shillings this year to educate the communities on the FGM Bill that was passed by Parliament in December 2009.
