HELPING HANDS

Protect The
Girl Child

As you may know, FGM is a deeply entrenched cultural practice that affects millions of girls and women worldwide. In The Gambia, where FGM prevalence is among the highest in the world, Gamcotrap has been working tirelessly to put an end to this harmful practice. With the help of our supporters, we have made significant progress in raising awareness about the harmful effects of FGM and advocating for its elimination.

Girls in The Gambia as young as four months old are blindfolded, pinned down, and forced to have their genitals cut off — and soon this horror could be completely legal. Gambian politicians want to reverse the country’s ban on female genital mutilation. FGM survivors are trying to save the ban and protect the girls who haven’t been cut yet. Those brave women are asking us to join the fight with a massive global outcry. We have less than 90 days to act, so sign now and Avaaz will work with Gambian groups to bring our voices to the decision-makers!
