We’re a youth-led non-profit organization that unites young people with the goal to end female genital mutilation and gender-based violence in Nigeria.

WE'VE GOT AN INTERESTING STORY

OUR VISION IS A WORLD FREE FROM FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION AND VIOLENCE ON THE BASIS OF GENDER.

We provide identity and a common vision to unite young people to end gender-based violence in Africa through effective social change communication and catalytic social change advocacy as well as providing safe spaces for young women to speak about issues that concern them.

We are unyielding in our resolve that FGM can end in this generation. In a bid to promote this vision, we engage in large-scale community outreach programs targeted at the custodians of culture to provide education and empowerment that enables them get rid of female genital mutilation.

We also target women and the girl child to provide positive cognitive and ideological reorientation about the status of women in the society, and the general social value placed on women. We desire a world where we do not have peace treaties, but a culture of peace.

Female Genital Circumcision and gender-based violence constitutes a fundamental assault to the dignity of women.

We believe in the utility of discourse, dialogue and advocacy, as vital tools and instruments for social integration and cohesion which will question the aspect of culture that upholds the practice of FGM

We strive and remain dogged to this vision till every practice of gender-based violence has been done away with completely in Africa.

Our campaigns are preventive and rehabilitative in nature. We target community chiefs and authorities, patriarchs, young school children generally between the ages of 9 and 20, especially school students.
