Safe Hands for Girls Strengthens FGM Ban in the Gambia through School Outreach Campaign

It’s been one year since FGM was officially banned in the Gambia, however the implementation of the law and sensitizing local communities to the harmful effects of FGM remains a significant challenge.  Safe Hands for Girls, a survivor-led organization supported by HDF, has continued to work relentlessly on creating awareness, most especially among the Gambian youth.  In October 2016, Safe Hands for Girls, in partnership with UNICEF, conducted a two days training for school students on FGM and advocacy.
