Our Current Publication Book Titled Environmental Conservation by Using Traditional  Knowledge  which was Supported by SGP/UNDP 

In June-Sept 2023, MAIPAC conducted an investigative news report regarding FGM and discovered it is still being practiced in the Longido District of Arusha on children under two years of age. 

In June-Sept 2023, MAIPAC, conducted an investigative news report regarding FGM and discovered it is still being practiced in the Longido District of Arusha on children under two years of age.  MAIPAC intends to do expand their investigation by using their reporters to focus on the region to raise awareness and combat the ongoing rise in FGM among infants. It is a silent plea as they do not have a voice to raise against the violation. The effects of such practices among young children are severe and may lead to death and illness such as UTI, permanent scarring, and HIV among other diseases. We need to continue to raise awareness to the Maasai community leaders, the men in the Longido and Monduli District, NGOs and Government officials to realize the damaging effects of FGM so as to end this type of violence against women and girls. This malpractice on infants must be thoroughly investigated, addressed, and reported in depth among different media outlets. 

Therefore, there is an urgent need for this project to be under taken in order to raise awareness and about the dangers of FGM and eradicate this issue among communities of Longido and Monduli, particularly targeting parents, relatives, tribal leaders and caregivers of young children.
