Rhobi’s work features in the award winning and incredibly powerful film Defying the Cutting Season, renamed In the Name of Your Daughter, by Giselle Portenier.  This shows Rhobi’s outreach and advocacy work in the remote villages around Mugumu, and the process of rescue and reconciliation.

With funding from Canada Fund for Local Initiatives Hope were able to conduct screenings in 20 villages in Butiama District, reaching over 40,000 people, as well as train teachers on how to recognise girls at risk of FGM and set up anti-FGM clubs in 24 schools.

This funding also allowed Hope to hold community forums and train village leaders on how to protect girls.
