TWO HUNDRED MILLION females alive today in the United States and worldwide have undergone Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Our objective is to eradicate this barbaric practice.
We set out to create awareness and put an end to FGM. In addition, we support other organizations in the eradication cause, creating a unified voice worldwide to eliminate this cruel, inhuman practice.
We provide education through our website, speaking engagements, seminars, and social media outreach, in hopes of raising the necessary funds needed to put an end to female genital mutilation.
