COVID linked to a rise in FGM

A rise in cases of FGM has recently been connected to the COVID pandemic.  According to a recent article in The Lancet, the “alarming signals of rising FGM cases are part of a broader context in which the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted women's wellbeing.” 


While COVID may continue, attacks to girls’ human rights and well-being do not need to.  With the help of grandmothers, girls have tireless advocates for their health and well-being. A grandmother is a powerful voice that can change harmful traditions and practices, but she also needs support and guidance to fulfill her role.  

 

We continue to work with grandmothers to give them leadership skills so they are educated and empowered to make positive changes in their communities.  Your continued support ensures that more grandmothers can be trained and supported to make a change in the lives of women and girls.
