Community Leaders Unite to End Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Child Marriage!
As the world marks another International Day of Zero for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), we take a moment to reflect on our community engagement efforts aimed at eradicating this harmful practice. With countless pledges to protect girls from FGM and other threats to their wellbeing, our commitment remains steadfast. We pledge to persistently invest our resources in ending female genital mutilation within our generation.
Girls Talk Mentorship Program 2022
The knowledge we provide our mentees is aimed at helping them understand their rights and work with us to combat harmful traditional practices and sexual and gender-based violence. Watch an inspiring video from our mentorship program earlier this year. The project is funded by UNICEF!
Community Outreach on FGM/Child Marriage in Soma!
A core part of our work is ensuring that we reach out to communities to not only educate them on the effects of harmful traditional practices such as FGM and Child Marriage but to also listen, learn and bring our thoughts together on better ways to eradicate these practices. We had such an exciting time in Soma, listening intensively to community stakeholders and engaging them on best practices to protect women and girls. This project was funded by UNICEF!
Girls Talk School Outreach Seminar
Last month, we held a School Outreach seminar with 100 high school students from 10 different schools to discuss Child Marriage and FGM. This activity was funded by UNICEF and It was a groundbreaking event as young people took centre stage and provided recommendations for ending these practices.
