Diatta, Fatou

I am Diola from the Casamance region in Senegal and I am a Muslim.

I’m dealing with the issue of FGM for a long time, and I mainly work between Senegal and Conakry, Guinea. In Senegal, I am working on two projects: In Kolda, I work in partnership with World Vision since 2013 and in Casamance, I partnered up with IAMANEH from Suisse in four different African villages. Moreover, I work in partnership with orchid project from UK and Tostan in Guinea and the St. Louis region. On top of that, I travelled through 34 countries to share my approach to end FGM using an artistic approach. On reason is that I am also cut!

I hope, that through the Let’s CHANGE project our message will reach the Diaspora because we play a very big role in our community back home. Concluding, I would like to have a possibility to bring the project back home to share it with my partners and the group to plan how we can finally end FGM also in Africa.
