Escape from FGM
Summary: 16-year-old twins Hope and Leah escaped FGM with minutes to spare. Listen to them tell their story and find out why they want to fight for girls' rights. Background: UK Aid works through partners to support a collective abandonment of the FGM, encouraging whole communities to say no to FGM together. We are backing the Africa-led movement to end FGM, working in 17 countries from Kenya to Ethiopia, Somalia to Uganda. Our support to The Girl Generation allows them to work with grassroots organisations like the one looking after Hope and Leah to help them effectively campaign for an end to FGM within their own communities.
