The Scourge of FGM & Early Marriage in Garissa

I'm not an oracle but I'll try and draw on whatever meager oracular powers I possess to claim that the girls housed at Dr. Ekman Girls's Home will in very measurable ways transform the role of women in society and our perception of islamo-neo-feminism. Right now, I'm all bubbly because this institution is solely breaking down deep rooted cultural misconceptions on womanhood and the role of a strong female in society. I have been to this school, talked to the girls and will be writing a review on the performance of this school cum home.

Save for preppy middle class private schools, I don't think there are any other schools in Garissa that have students whose mastery of english is so flawless whose desire to succeed despite all obstacles is boundless and whose generosity is so genuine. 

I thank NTV for telling a story that needed to be told in a voice that is so authentic.
