Your support can help protect girls like Salome from FGM
Salome was only 12 when she ran away from home to escape female genital mutilation (FGM). When her father called a cutter early one morning she fled, walking over 200km to find a school to take her in and protect her.
I didn’t know anywhere to go, I just ran in one direction… I slept overnight in a tree the first day.
Now, Salome is safe, but she is still not in contact with her family. With the support of players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, ActionAid is working to end FGM so that girls like Salome will no longer be forcibly cut.
We provide direct support to women and girls who have escaped FGM. We help communities to learn and openly talk about its damaging effects, and we train women to form Women’s Watch Groups to report cases of FGM.
