End Female Genital Mutilation

Posted September 11, 2019 from Nigeria

In order to stop girls from going through the horror and sustainably contribute to ending FGM by 2030,  SIRP NIGERIA uses the Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP) approach. The ARP approach takes away the cut while retaining important aspects such as sexuality education, blessings by elders, and keeping girls in schools. It preserves and protects the good cultural values of communities. It provides the much needed life-skills to the girls while giving them a future.

The practice of FGM kills many girls as a result of bleeding, infections, and later complications during birth. It strips off the girl’s dignity. Let's #EndFGM  #Endgbv

Dear Evelyn,

Thank you for your photo and update.

I wish you a very best for your contribution to ending FGM by 2030. No girls should be forced in the name of dignity. It's their own rights to be safe and sound.

best regards,
anjana

Hi Evelyn,

This is a great campaign, i applaud you for the great strides you are taking to end FGM.
Some tribes in my country - Uganda do it and i have seen the disastrous effects it has on women of child bearing age.

Do keep sharing your progress

I wish you all the best,

Julie.
