Victim Hibo Wardere is campaigning for greater education on the threat of female genital mutilation
by Zoie O'Brien
A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM) has started a campaign calling for mandatory teaching on the issue in schools.
Teaching assistant Hibo Wardere, of Hatherley Road in Walthamstow, was a victim of the practice in her home country of Somalia when she was six.
Now she is calling on schools to warn girls about what they should do if they believe they may become a victim.
