Today is Day of the African Child, and UNICEF are celebrating with some great news!

Over the past two weeks, hundreds of communities in Mali, The Gambia, Senegal and Guinea have publicly declared that they have abandoned female genital mutilation/cutting and child marriage. Learn more about the fantastic work that UNICEF’s partner Tostan does to encourage these declarations here:
