Violence against women and girls

Violence against women and girls

We exist to end female genital mutilation and child marriage, as well as tackling wider issues of violence against African women and girls.

We remain unafraid to tackle these issues head on. We safeguard the rights and dignity of women and girls and support those living with the consequences. We amplify their voices, enabling them to drive change in their communities.

We base our approach to achieving long-lasting change on knowledge shared by affected African women and girls, as well as individuals and organisations serving their communities. As trusted thought leaders, we actively share our learnings with our partners, networks and supporters.

Together, we can achieve our goal to eliminate harmful practices and protect African women and girls – faster.

Did you know- Our Founder Efua Dorkenoo OBE was at the forefront of the campaign for FGM to be recognised as a global human rights violation by the United Nations, and a prosecutable offence in the UK?
