Transforming the world through education
Loading Events

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is recognized internationally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women because violates their rights to health, security, physical integrity, their right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment, and their right to life when the procedure results in death. Most procedures are done between infancy and age 15. It is estimated that unless actions are taken now to end female genital mutilation, another 68 million girls suffer the consequences by 2030. This day is a way to call attention to the problem and to say that we stand with the poor, the voiceless, and those in need of education.
