Today, July 23rd, young people across Africa launch the I will end FGM campaign to end Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) by sparking one million conversations to break the silence that allows the practice to continue.
As the largest African generation ever, young people across Africa and the rest of the world are raising their voices and making a stand to end FGM. They are pledging to make theirs the generation that ends FGM and they are inviting anyone to do the same. They are asking their friends, their peers, their communities and their leaders to join them in speaking out about FGM.
The young African advocates are posting videos on social media to speak out against FGM and are inspiring others to show their support by also making a pledge to end FGM. The videos, which are on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #ihavespoken and #EndFGM, seek to break the silence that surrounds the issue.
Join them on social media and make your commitment to end FGM using the hashtags #ihavespoken and #endFGM.
