I Took on My Village Elders to End FGM

Aged 8, Outlook Inspirations winner Nice Leng'ete was destined to undergo female genital mutilation, leave school and be married off to an older man, according to Maasai tradition. She not only fought against FGM for herself, but through her bravery and persistence, helped overturn this centuries-old practice for thousands of Maasai girls across Kenya and Tanzania.

Nice appeared on Outlook on 23rd January 2018.
