End FGM activists demand better support for emotional wellbeing

Survivors and campaigners from across Africa highlight the need to prioritise mental health in the fight against FGM

To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and the start of 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence, activists fighting against FGM have come together to ask the End FGM movement to prioritise mental health.

Watch a video about the pioneering project on emotional well-being created and led by Magool founder Dr Leyla Hussein in partnership with The Girl Generation and supported by Wallace Global Fund.

During the 16 Days of Activism The Girl Generation will be sharing the messages from activists from across Africa who are part of this new project using the hashtags #EndFGM and #16Days. Please follow and support.
