The Kenyan teenagers tackling female genital mutilation with an app

(CNN)A group of Kenyan teenagers have created an app called i-Cut to help girls affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

The students, Stacy Owino, Cynthia Otieno, Purity Achieng, Mascrine Atieno and Ivy Akinyi, have named themselves ‘The Restorers’, and will be the only Africans participating in the 2017 Technovation Challenge in Silicon Valley in August.
The app will help connect affected girls to legal and medical assistance.
