Thanks to you we have been able to do more than ever before to help our partners change the lives of thousands of girls around the world.
Donor Direct Action’s Efua Dorkenoo Fund To End FGM supports front line groups such as The Galkayo Center in Somalia and the Tasaru Ntomonok Initiative in Kenya. These organizations are led by brave African women who have dedicated their lives to ending female genital mutilation (FGM), a harmful practice that often has devastating if not deadly consequences.

This International Day of the Girl we’re asking you to make a donation to this Fund – a recurring contribution if you are able – to help ensure that every single girl is protected from FGM, and can go on to live her life to her full potential.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
