The Girl Generation’s End FGM Grassroots Fund

Type of project:  We support local, grassroots organisations in some of the countries most affected by FGM. We believe that their local connections, insight and influence mean they are best placed to spark the social changes required for FGM to end. Yet it’s very difficult for such groups to access funds: they are often too small to be eligible for grants from the majority of donors. Projects funded include educating people about the harmful effects of FGM; promoting community dialogue (on and offline); training teachers and healthcare workers, or building a new generation of youth activists to tackle FGM – our grantees are there, doing it.

Location: Current grantees are working in Nigeria, Kenya, Somaliland, Sudan, The Gambia, Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso.

Eligibility: Local, grassroots organisations in some of the countries most affected by FGM. We believe that their local connections, insight and influence mean they are best placed to spark the social changes required for FGM to end.

Grant size: An average of $10,500
