I support Tostan, and organization that fights the continuation of this practice.

             Warning: This video is graphic

"Tostan's mission is to empower African communities to bring about sustainable development and positive social transformation based on respect for human rights.

Tostan means "breakthrough" in the West African language of Wolof. Since 1991, Tostan has brought its holistic 30-month education program to thousands of communities in ten African countries: Burkina Faso, Djibouti, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, Somalia, and Sudan"
***Want to add a note here that I heard that Guinea Bissau has been successful in outlawing this practice. If anyone reading this knows more. please feel to comment.
