Help Kenyan girls escape FGM

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a brutal practice putting thousands of girls’ lives at risk. Those who survive are often forced into early marriage and become pregnant – their futures cut short.

To end this practice we urgently need to increase understanding and raise more funds.

“I have met many inspiring women living in extreme poverty so I feel passionately about supporting ActionAid’s FGM campaign. Now that I have my own daughter too I feel even more strongly. Together, if we all take action, we can help end FGM for good.”
