Qena Governorate, 19 years old

Ahmed Tayb

Before joining Nawah team, I believed in many wrong customs and traditions (common in my community in Qena ) like FGM and early marriage. I have always thought FGM is really important for protecting girls as Islam said.  I also thought that girls should marry younger even before 18 years old. Attending Nawah community theater training made me see really the reality of these beliefs. I understood that FGM has nothing to do with religion and it is even dangerous and child marriage for girls endanger her lives. I find it a good chance for me with the theatre to help changing these misconceptions in Qena and Egypt.
