Mission

We aim to stop female genital mutilation by sensitizing the public in Germany, lobbying government, and supporting promising educational projects in Africa. We also maintain a hotline for questions regarding FGM, especially from women and girls seeking medical or legal assistance.

Programs

We have managed an exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Nigerian artists on FGM exhibited in more than 70 venues between 4 February 2000 and 26 February 2006 in Germany, the UK, Italy and Switzerland.. See http://www.forwarduk.org.uk/key-issues/fgm/nigerian-artists and http://share.shutterfly.com/share/received/album.sfly?startIndex=32&sid=0BbNmTVuzYsXUQ&fid=8f444ed5401a1cb6 We also supported a CARAVAN of YOUTH in early September 2007 in Mali in cooperation with the APDF, a week of discussion in seven villages in Segou region where FGM prevalence is high. Traveling with the group, Erica Pomerance produced a 60 minute documentary, Caravane, available on DVD. In March 2011, FORWARD president Tobe Levin returned to Mali to interview the caravaniers about their assessments of success. See "Caravane revisitee #1" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIbO-VoRmO8
