CUTTING

Female Circumcision often results in the spread of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.

Cutting devices are unclean and may be used for multiple cuts with unclean knifes or blades.  The practice is often done with a group of girls at one time.

During school holidays in August and December, the rite of passage is performed in the villages.  The girls are usually between the ages of 10 and 12.
