“Do not cut off their dreams. Saving a girl is saving a generation “, is a project aimed at raising awareness and training for the prevention and eradication of female genital mutilation and other traditional practices that harm women.
It is carried out jointly by the NGO Save a Girl Save a Generation and Acción en Red, which have been collaborating for more than three years in different fields of activity with a population of African origin.
Its activity focuses on training in the prevention and eradication of FGM, with an intercultural and gender perspective, to professionals who deal with families from African and Asian countries, mainly health personnel practicing in Health Centers and Hospitals (doctors of family, gynecologists, pediatricians, nurses …), social workers, intercultural mediators and university students of similar careers.
Another fundamental part of the project focuses on training in sexual and reproductive health directed at women and men from African and Asian countries, and other learning, more specifically directed at women, carried out by African activists who are part of the coordination and project management. To this end, a working group called BATOU-Women-Femmes-Women has been set up, composed of European and African women from different countries and cultures, to reinforce work ties aimed at rejecting traditions that harm women and raise awareness in their rights of equality and freedom.
This project is co-financed by La Caixa.
