The Department for Education announced new guidelines in February on compulsory relationships and sex education classes indicating that secondary schools should address the physical and emotional damage caused by FGM.
Press Release: Leading UK-based African diaspora women’s campaign and support organisation FORWARD is set to release a unique album to highlight the work it does towards ending FGM (female genital mutilation).
In light of today’s news that the mother of a three-year-old girl has become the first person in the UK to be found guilty of female genital mutilation (FGM), FORWARD, a London based African women’s organisation, raises concerns and is surprised that there seems to be general rejoicing that a successful prosecution on FGM has finally happened in the UK
FORWARD, a London based African women’s organisation, is outraged and deeply saddened that 50 girls have been hospitalised after being subjected to ‘botched’ female genital mutilation in Kaya, in Burkina Faso (West Africa).
London based African women’s charity FORWARD who has campaigned on female genital mutilation (FGM) for over 30 years is launching the Make Child Mothers Count in Tanzania campaign in collaboration with the @GlobalGiving Accelerator Crowdfunding Campaign.
