Loreto Sisters, a catholic religious congregation, has its main mission in protecting and promoting the dignity and rights of the less served in the community especially women and girls through faith.
AIM: The project's aim is to expose FGM, its consequences, its origin, and its prevalence from the point of view of culture, religion, and modern science, leaving the decision to circumcise, or not to circumcise, to the person's free will.(We are aware that those who want will always circumcise girls in secret).
Their main activities are in education where they establish schools for girls. The headquarters is in Rome and operate in 29 countries all over the world. The congregation has been celebrating 400 years since its foundation. The Loreto Sisters have been in Kenya ever since the 1950s with emphasis being the education and wellbeing of the girl.
There were seven reported "Rite of Passage for Girls" seminars conducted by project facilitators, which were not financially sponsored by the project.
There were many Talks and FGM Video presentations given to groups in response to an invitation to individuals among project facilitators. Among these were invitations from Irish Schools in Ireland; a group from George Town University of the USA, and a group of students from a University in New York.
