In Kenya, The prevalence of FGM in women aged 15–49 is 21%.

The rate of Child Pregnancy in Kajiado County is 20 percent according to Kenya Demographic and Health Survey 2014.

Girls who go through FGM are denied their right to education, childhood experiences and exposed to health risks and multiple
sexual partners.
