We work to contribute to a world where women and girls are free from female genital mutilation, forced marriages, and any other forms of gender violence and whereby girls and women have the power to be agents of change and contribute to education, health, and leadership in their communities.

We want to eradicate harmful traditions and other forms of violence against women and girls by accelerating positive change.
