Save a Girl Save a Generation fights against female genital mutilation, child exploitation, forced marriages, and against any form of mistreatment of women. It is formed and run by women who have been denied the right to speak and defend their rights since they were young girls. Therefore, they felt the need to protect other women in similar circumstances so that they could prevent others from becoming victims of the same abuses. She has been working anonymously for 20 years to inform people of the reality that millions of girls in the world must face. Asha has been carrying out projects in Spain and Africa for over one year.
