Our multi-award-winning UK Schools Programme, delivered by FORWARD’s experienced facilitators, provides a comprehensive, and wide range of age-appropriate services and activities for primary and secondary schools; and higher education institutions.
We believe that schools play a vital role in protecting and supporting girls affected by or at risk of FGM. Schools also hold a unique position to address FGM, because they are connected to families, the wider community, as well as professionals.
Our services are designed to support students and their parents, educators and external organisations working with schools to understand the key issues that affect girls from affected communities. We deliver age-appropriate and culturally sensitive sessions at the primary level 5 and 6 and to secondary and college students. We also offer Safeguarding Sessions for all staff members in a train the trainer’s courses.
