First US retreat for Bohra Activists

NGO Sahiyo holds the first retreat for anti-female genital cutting activists from the US Bohra community

From January 19th-21st, Sahiyo hosted the first-ever U.S. Activist Retreat for U.S. based women who grew up in the Bohra tradition and who advocate against FGC. The retreat brought 11 women from all over the country together to discuss the challenges they face in their work, share best practices, and to build stronger relationships with one another.
