On June 9, 2020, in the frame of our thematic discussion on « Mental health, Well-being and FGM », a first webinar was organised.

Our two speakers, Venoranda Kuboka, children and youth therapist, team leader at Youth Changers Kenya and Farzana Doctor, psychotherapist and survivor of FGM brought explanation on the question.

  • Venoranda Kuboka shared some assessments from her experience as a psychotherapist in Kenya and highlighted obstacles hindering psychological accompaniment of women and girls concerned.
