Saturday we continued our tour from Thionck Essyl to Sedhiou. Once we have arrived there we had a meeting with the representatives of the acadamic inspection. They are responsible for the schools in the region of Sedhiou. We explaind them our project and which role the schools can take to stop female genital cutting. In the same sense we also had a meeting on Sunday with the teachers of Sedhjou. They really can do a lot. They can explain to the students the harmful consequences of FGC as they can for HIV. It should be part of the lessons about the human body. I hope that the teachers will have the courage the make this education part of their classes.
Saturday children of the school presented different plays to the public which dealt with the practice of FGC and there also was a exhibition concerning the child rights. In the evening we played another concert at the school ground of the CEM Fode Kaba Dounbouya. The public was very excited and we had a wonderful evening.
Sunday after the meeting with the local teachers and Tostan Sedhjou we travelled to Kolda where we arrived in the evening and were welcome by members of our partner organisation Tostan, the deputy mayor, the local teachers and a huge part of the population. They organised a great welcome cermony with a lot of traditional music and dances for us. After having great fun together I thanked everybody for coming and invited them to follow us on our mission to end FGC.
