In the beginning of January 2012 Sister Fa was in Senegal to bring forward her programme to promote the human rights for a peaceful, secure and strong Africa. During her stay she organised a day of reflection to find ways how to promote human rights by the means of music. Many local artists and from abroad (Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso and Gambia), as well as the NGO’s Tostan and Orchid Project and the TV channel Africa 7 participated at this day of reflection. The reunion was very informative. The main point on the agenda was the abandonment of Female Genital Cutting and the impact this practice has on the rights of woman and girls. In succession it was discussed which role the artists and the young generation could take in the sensitization work for the abandonment of this practice. This meeting was part of the preparations for the sensitization tour of Sister Fa & Band in April and May 2012 in Senegal.
