Mulu Sew

Ethiopia

In 2010, PMC published Mulu Sew (“The Complete Personality”). The stories in this volume showed the consequences of people’s attitudes toward harmful traditional practices, such as Female Genital Mutilation.

Mulu Sew consisted of 11 short stories. This book contributed to the Whole Society Strategy supporting the 2007-2015 Female Genital Mutilation Project in Ethiopia, along with a radio talkshow, Gudayachen (“Our Concern”), two radio magazines, Naedetai (“Let’s Stop, This Is Enough”) and Igaddaa (“We Do Not Want It Anymore”), seven Capacity Building Training Workshops, and three other books, Yemaleda Shekim (“Burden at a Tender Age”), Yaltenabebu Libotch (“Incongruous Hearts”), and Wurse (“Inheritance”). In addition to these components, PMC has produced TV and radio spots and leaflets in three languages (Amharic, Afar, and Somali).


Community perception creates the community’s reality. PMC’s book Mulu Sew in Ethiopia showed the consequences of people’s attitudes toward harmful traditional practices, such as Female Genital Mutilation.

Making a Difference

As part of Whole Society Strategies for important health and social messages, PMC has published a total of 10 books in Ethiopia and one book about the effectiveness of using books for social change. All of these books have been distributed to the libraries of government agencies, UN organizations, professional associations, schools, and other relevant organizations.
