Ending female genital mutilation

Our Mission

WE SUPPORT LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND DECISION MAKERS TO ERADICATE FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IN KENYA AND SOMALILAND.

Female genital mutilation hurts the society as a whole

Female genital mutilation or FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women. It is a deep-rooted tradition that reflects extreme gender inequality. It is mainly done to girls, which makes it not only a violation of human rights, but a violation of childrens rights. We work toward ending FGM by engaging grass-root and regional level decision makers, as well as mobilizing local communities to speak and act against FGM.

200

million girls and women globally have undergone FGM.

6

million girls are in danger of undergoing FGM annually.




We work towards ending FGM in Kenya and Somaliland. Our goal is to see girls free from FGM.

Our current themes:

  • Increasing knowledge and dialogue among community members.
  • Mobilizing local duty bearers, such as religious leaders, helps us to challenge norms and disseminate information.
  • Working with local decision makers to enforce laws and mobilize resources.
  • Building trust by empowering women and communities, and helping build sustainable livelihoods.
