Ending FGM and violence against young girls in Ethiopia

It’s estimated that over 125 million women and girls in Africa and the Middle East have undergone some form of female genital mutilation or excision (source Unicef).

In Ethiopia, 74% of women ages 15-49 have undergone some form of FGM and close to 25% of girls under the age of 14 are subjected to the harmful practice.

Un Enfant par La Main and ChildFund Ethiopia are working to end the harmful practice of FGM in five villages in the Bassona Worana district in Ethiopia by raising awareness about the dangers of FGM among traditional cutters, students, teachers, and the wider community.
