Despite the ban on FGM as a Human Rights violation girls continue to face the pain of the blade. Recently COVID-19 has exacerbated the risk of FGM on girls due to closure of schools.

Long-Term Impact

The project will reach 250 girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation( FGM) allowing them & families to make positive choices of stopping FGM in turn improving their health & general well-being. We will continue to support these girls and families as role models/champions in their communities to reach out to their peers to also make positive choices of ending FGM which will in turn keep girls safe from harm of FGM in the community.
