Early Marriage and Female Genital Cutting – Ethiopian Orthodox Church Faith Leader Toolkit

This toolkit is designed to educate faith leaders and make it easier for them to talk about early marriage and female genital cutting. Included are medical facts and theological references that help faith leaders to speak out against these harmful practices. The toolkit also helps leaders to answer the tough questions they will receive along the way.

Each piece of the toolkit has been designed for a fairly specific audience since different audiences require different approaches. The sections contain discussion questions, religious references, and activities appropriate for that audience. The modules can be taught as an entire unified lesson or excerpted, and lessons can be modified.
