Youth around the world are speaking out to end FGM.
What are you doing to speak out? Share your stories of how you are engaging your community, friends and family with us – shout it out on #ihavespoken and #endfgm.
As the largest generation of African youth ever, young people across Africa are raising our voices and making our stand to end Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) known.
We are asking our friends, our peers, our communities and our leaders to join us in speaking out about FGM.
Our vision is to spark 1,000,000 conversations around the world, which break the silence that allows the practice to continue.
We are posting videos on social media to raise awareness and inspire others to show their support by also making a pledge to end FGM. The videos are on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #Ihavespoken and #EndFGM.
We are showing our commitment to ending FGM, speaking out wherever we can, and asking others to do the same.
Will you join us?
FGM Ends with Us.
FGM is a human rights abuse and an extreme manifestation of violence against women and girls. Nearly 200 million women and girls have undergone FGM globally, in 30 countries.
Did you know that 68 million girls are at risk of FGM by 2030? That’s one girl every 8 seconds.
This campaign is about protecting those girls.
Young people are taking the lead to end FGM and bring about positive change.
