In an effort to combat the practice of female genital mutilation, commonly known as female circumcision, that is especially rampant in rural Egypt, the National Council for Women (NCW) has decided to offer financial incentives to villages that obliterate the practice. 
Secretary-General of the NCW Mervat Tallawy has, following talks with Minya governor Major General Serag Eddin al-Ruby, approved a financial support package to the tune of EGP400,000 for a number of Minya villages the communities of which have collectively obliterated female circumcision.
