"The Girl Generation, through its End FGM Grants Programme, aims to build the Africa-led movement to end FGM

We will enable grassroots organisations working to end FGM access small grants through a flexible and accessible process. The purpose of the funds is to accelerate social change to end FGM through communications, advocacy and campaigning. The Girl Generation is therefore seeking proposals from grassroots organisations, networks and individuals based in Kenya, Nigeria and The Gambia focused on ending FGM. The types of grants available for funding include:​

•Small grants (US$ 4,000 – US$ 10,000) •Medium grants (US$ 10,000 – US$ 20,000) •Large grants (US$ 20,000 – US$ 50,000) •Local travel grants (US$ 1,500) •International travel grants (US$ 3,500)​

These grants will enable grassroots organisations and individuals to access funds to support communication, advocacy and campaigning activities that promote and accelerate the process of ending FGM in Africa.

We will have THREE rounds of grant application reviews, therefore, applicants have the choice to submit their grant application forms by the following stipulated submission deadlines: 4 November 2016, 3 March 2017, and 3 July 2017.

They also have a free network for organisations working to end FGM. There is a link to more information about the network and how to join it on the grants page.

"Our members are organisations, networks or institutions that share our vision and endorse our guiding Do No Harm principles. We encourage grassroots organisations, youth networks, diaspora organisations, media and private sector partners committed to ending FGM, across the African continent and beyond, to become members of The Girl Generation.

Does your work relate to issues such as violence against women and girls, gender equality, harmful traditional practices, health and education? If so, The Girl Generation would like to partner with you.

We welcome members from all over the world!"
