In Senegal, the movement to end female genital mutilation/cutting is reaching the most remote places. On the sandy roads of the Fouta region and along the river, the information about the problems caused by the traditional practice circulates, inspiring people in dozens of villages to rise up in support of women’s and girls’ health.
This photo essay documents a site visit by funders of the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting, which is supporting communities in abandoning the practice using culturally sensitive, rights-based approaches.
