Janet Chapman “on the ground” with the girls at the safe house started off by making all the necessary configurations and setting up phones for training more volunteers on how to create navigable maps of local areas in Tanzania to help rescue and allocate innocent girls who are being forced to undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
