Together with UNICEF, you can protect girls from FGM.
These measures lead to change
The complexity of the practice requires a comprehensive approach at multiple levels, spearheaded by programs to overcome social behavioral norms. In collaboration with the organization Born Saleema, UNICEF is focusing on the following measures in Sudan:
- Information and awareness campaigns in schools and the media
- Involvement of religious decision-makers, village elders and mayors
- Education and training of healthcare workers
- Education on children’s rights
- Training of criminal justice system workers to improve prosecution of FGM cases
of all girls worldwide have been subjected to FGM
of 14- to 49-year-old women in Sudan have been subjected to FGM
of girls in Africa are at risk of FGM by the end of 2030
Effective help for just CHF 1 per day
With your help, UNICEF is successfully committed to the fight against FGM. The goal of our work is to persuade the entire population to rethink the practice through careful educational work at all levels.
- Girls who have not been subjected to FGM should be recognized as equals;
- FGM should be perceived as a violation of children’s and human rights;
- legal measures should be taken.
As a project sponsor, you make this work possible. You will receive two sponsorship reports every year, along with UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein’s annual report and a donation receipt.
