Celebrating the first completed year of the EU-funded project “Let’s CHANGE”, the project’s CHANGE Agents and Trainers invited their community members, friends, and families to have community party on Saturday, 24 August 2019. The community party was meant to celebrate the CHANGE Agents’ and Trainers’ successes in the project, while at the same time, giving the members of the various diaspora communities the chance to get to know each other, network and receive information about “female genital mutilation” (FGM). 

The party took place at “Radio – The Label Bar” in Berlin-Friedrichshain, which offered a cozy and relaxed atmosphere for the event. Due to the summer heat, the guests were able to sit outside and connect, while enjoying their cold drinks and food from the colorful buffet.
