Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation Organisations

This list in the book Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation is a by no means exhaustive list of organisations in various parts of the world which support the eradication of FGM.

For convenience and to avoid duplication, this page is being shared with the Female Mutilation Worldwide Organisations page for my narrative ‘FGM stories’ book, Female Mutilation: The truth behind the horrifying global practice of female genital mutilation (New Holland Publishers, 2016).  Readers can visit (or return to) the Female Mutilation Worldwide website here.

Please use the Comments box below to amend or correct the details below, and to add other #EndFGM agencies and groups to the list, if possible with a note of what specifically they do and why you recommend them. Thank you.
