Isha was very young when she was forced to undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), a painful and disfiguring procedure involving the removal of the external female genitalia.
It’s the same experience that millions of young women like Isha still go through today, but your gift can help them take control of their futures.
“My parents didn’t give me any kind of warning … As soon as I went inside someone blindfolded me, and then it happened.”
FGM is still practiced in many communities and countries around the world – where it is often considered an important initiation ritual.
That’s why it is so important to empower and support communities to understand that they can end this harmful practice without losing their culture and traditions.
When you give generously today, you’ll help support more girls like Isha to end FGM in their communities.
