This thesis is based on literature review and the author`s own experiences about Female Genital Mutilation in her own community in Kenya. The author will also describe Female Genital Mutilation in Kenya. WHO 1997 defines Female genital mutilation as all procedures involving partial or total removal of the female external genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs, for non medical reasons. The studies were identified through the electronic database, OVID database (CINAHL, MEDLINE,EBSCO), Pubmed, Science Direct and Your Journals@Ovid using the following key words: FGM, FGC, Female Genital Mutilation in Kenya, Female Genital Mutilation in Africa, Role of education in eradicating FGM, Female circumcision and Alternative rites approach for FGM . My comprehensive search strategy included all articles published in English between the periods of 1993-2009. The results in this final project answers the research questions in that there are other alternative rites approaches that substitute the practice of Female Genital Mutilation in local communities and also it gives the reasons why Female Genital Mutilation is not a safe practice to be practiced.
