Ifrah Ahmed awarded Ireland's International Person of the Year

Irish Somali activist recognised for her international work to end FGM

Earlier this week Irish Somali anti-FGM activist Ifrah Ahmed attended a ceremony in Dublin where she was awarded International Person of the Year in recognition of her campaign to end female genital mutilation (FGM). Receiving her award from Irish First Lady Sabina Higgins, Ifrah spoke of her honour in her work being recognised in this way and thanked all those who help her campaign.

You can read more about the awards in the Irish Times.

Ifrah's remarkable story from her early life in Somalia, becoming a refugee, building a new life in Ireland and becoming a leading international activist against FGM is now the inspiration for a forthcoming film A Girl from Mogadishu. You can get updates on the progress of the film by signing up on their website.
