Tunakuhitaji Thomson Reuters!

Breaking news on 'Together We Refuse', a pioneering project which uses dramatherapy and creative writing techniques to open up dialogue between mothers and daughters about the possibility of refusing FGM ( female genital mutilation).  Our pilot project in Kenya has been fully funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust and the Wellcome Trust, but next year we start work in London and Bristol with the Somali and Sudanese communities.  These workshops will be partially funded by Brunel University but we also need outside funding to really make the workshops as wide-reaching and impactful as possible.

Youtube Interview With Joshua Dickinson

Here's a link to an interview with Joshua Dickinson - a matric pupil at St Dominic's Priory in Port Elizabeth.  Joshua - it was a real pleasure to do the interview with you and I wish you great success in your university studies next year and your chosen career in media, journalism and television.  You have already shown great initiative in putting projects like the interview I did with you together, whilst still at school.  Well done.

Iris Nicola Harriet Dickie, born 10th October 2013.
