Gender Equality: Catalyzing Transformative Change and Empowering Hope-Filled Future

Data and experience prove it is possible to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage in less than a generation. 

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. However, this goal will remain unreachable if centuries-old forms of gender-based violence, such as female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage persist, and girls in Kenya and around the world are prevented from creating hope-filled futures of their own design.

World Vision’s Kenya Big Dream addresses the root causes of FGM: extreme poverty, illiteracy, and cultural norms. The Kenya Big Dream ensures access to education and provides life skills training for girls, economic empowerment for families removing the financial incentive of the bride price for their girl, and changes social norms harmful to girls and boys.  Realized hope for a better future is an unstoppable force.
