Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting

This video highlights the voices of male champions who have vowed to be at the fore-front in the quest to end FGM, child marriage and other forms of sexual and gender based violence.

The purpose of this National Action Plan is to foster an environment of prevention in Scotland and to improve the welfare and quality of life of FGM survivors, with a focus on the linked areas of prevention, protecting girls at risk of FGM; and provision of appropriate support and sensitive services for survivors of FGM.

 

The Saleema initiative, launched in 2008 by the National Council of Child Welfare (NCCW) and UNICEF Sudan,  supports the protection of girls from genital cutting, particularly in the context of efforts to promote collective abandonment of the practice at community level.

In this radio drama, two Somali teenagers, Muna and Iqra, go to the same school in South London. They are from the same place but they are strangers; strangers who share a secret embedded in their culture - both were victims of FGM.

This manual is meant for training program managers to promote the abandonment of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C). It has been designed under a joint program of the United Nations Population Fund and the United Nations Children’s Fund.
