Today, February 6th 2014, is FGM Zero Tolerance Day. It also marks the beginning of a partnership between leading anti-FGM campaigners across the UK who are part of a consortium funded by the UKs Department for International Development (DfID) which aims to end FGM within a generation.
The Social Change Campaign and its partners, including Advocacy International, will support increasing momentum in Africa to end FGM/C. Ai is proud to be part of this momentous work.
One of our consortium partners, Leyla Hussein of Daughters of Eve, has written on the Huffington Post, announcing the partnership and talking about her work on FGM over the past 11 years.
