Joint forces to combat FGM

11. August 2014, von Arvid Vormann

Although security situation is tense, life is continuing in Iraqi Kurdistan, and we still pursue our goal to make FGM a practice of the past.


We assembled seven members organizations for trainings on how to effectively raise awareness on FGM on the ground. In total 20 people are taking part, receiving lessons from lawyers, doctors, human rights activists, and those most experienced in the field: Wadi’s mobile team members.

All participants were extremely motivated and eager to learn about strategies to convince the people. This training is offered as part of the joint Wadi-UNICEF project to advance the elimination of FGM in Kurdistan.
