Mission Statement

The mission of the Corporation is to support and organize in-person and online initiatives that seek to prevent female genital mutilation/cutting ("FGM/C") and to provide an interactive campaign of support for those affected by FGM/C.

Description

Ourwebsite, www.formafgc.org, has been launched. It is designed as an interactive space for FGM/C-affected women to share their stories through art, poetry, journal-writing, film, music, or any other form of artistic expression. We have also created an online community for those women wishing to dialogue about the difficulties affecting them. We hope to facilitate and foster conversational interventions that would validate a sense of wholeness and social acceptance for women who have been cut.

In addition, we currently offer individual counseling and group process for those affected by FGM/C.

We conduct particularized training and presentations for practitioners on the medical, psychological, cultural and legal dimensions of FGM/C. We also seek to develop and implement FGM/C campaigns for the general public and raise awareness by supplying journalists, radio hosts, and TV presenters with human interest stories revolving about the origins, practice, and post-traumatic consequences of FGM/C.
