6 February: International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation”
6 February is one of the 163 special days of the UN - but this issue deserves attention Nonetheless: the "International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation" This is not an issue that's far away (see this report on. A woman who mutilated her three-year-old daughter has become the first person in the UK to be found guilty of female genital mutilation ) and many are still fighting against it in African countries ( here is a report from MMI on this ).
C4C is working with partners in Nigeria, who agree with us that eradicate FGM and impact transition, a change in mindset and cultural beliefs must occur. In order to catalyze this process of change, we identify the most competent and daring agents of change, who have to deal with and reduce stigma when refusing FGM. In this way we stimulate intra-community dialogue, using theater to transform FGM related behavior on a large scale.
