Since its foundation, TERRE DES FEMMES supports women´s rights organisations working against FGM in African countries.
Besides fighting the practice, women and girls are also supposed to gain more independence and self-determination through our financial contributions. The organisations are led and conducted by courageous local women. As a matter of principle, we do not interfere with the contents of their promising approaches. We understand our support to be part of a mutual learning and exchange process between women across national and cultural boundaries.
The department against FGM currently supports two women´s organisations:
Since 1997, TERRE DES FEMMES supports Bangr Nooma in Burkina Faso and since 2009, the Amazonian Initiative Movement (AIM) in Sierra Leone.
Do you want to support these organisations specifically?
