BEHIND THE SCENES: Mercedes Fashion Show - Johannesburg, South Africa: Abandonment of FGC - Senegal

Mamadou Ba, a Tostan Facilitator, teaches a class of villagers from the Fulani and Pulaar ethnic groups. Using a book of illustrations, he covers several topics  including what to do with diarrhea and how to make rehydrating salts. After going through the book, he calls on several of the villagers to come up and explain what they have learnt. This is to make sure they have understood the class, but also to make sure that they have understood it properly so that when they go and visit relatives or friends in neighbouring villages they can talk about what they have learnt and spread the word.
