ABOUT THE #ENDCUTTINGGIRLS CAMPAIGN
The #endcuttinggirls campaign is a UNFPA-UNICEF Joint programme on elimination of FGM in Nigeria funded by UNICEF-Nigeria. The Goal of the programme is to contribute to the overall goal as set by the Interagency Statement on Eliminating FGM and reaffirmed by the 2012 United Nations General Assembly Resolution A/RES/67/1462 to support governments, communities, and the girls and women concerned towards the abandonment of FGM in Nigeria.

Our Mission

We envision a Nigeria where women and girls are free from all forms of gender-based violence, in particular Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C), and where girls and women are empowered to be actors of change and contribute to educated, healthy and skilled communities.

Our Vision

To contribute to the abandonment of FGM/C and other forms of violence against women and girls through accelerating positive change towards a social norm of not cutting girls by Youth Advocates of diverse organizations, duty bearers, rights holders and affected communities.

...

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide a knowledge base, good practice models and support networks to help anti-FGM/C campaigners and organisations working with communities to end FGM/C.

FGM Situation in Nigeria

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) “comprises all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons” (WHO, 2016).  FGM is commonly performed on unwilling girls aged 1 day to 14 years or women in circumstances they cannot give consent. FGM has no known health benefits. On the contrary, the practice is associated with violation of girls/women rights as it deprives the girls of their physical integrity, health, security, freedom from torture, cruelty, inhumane and degrading treatment as well as the right to life when the procedure results in death.
