How it works
Stand with brave girls
Alem, 13, is fighting to end FGM in her community in Ethiopia.
“I used to be embarrassed to talk about FGM, because the topic was completely taboo in our community. I have gained the courage to see that there is nothing mysterious or respectable about the topic.
“We have decided to save ourselves from this cruel tradition and help other girls too.
“Now there are so many of us, I am no longer embarrassed. I dare to speak out.”
