Vetusta Morla, Alice Wonder, Delaporte, Rozalén and Arkano join the NGO Save a Girl Save a Generation in a charity concert that will take place next October 30th in the Joy Eslava hall in Madrid. The full collection of the event will go to the project ‘Safe in Nairobi’, sponsored by Maggie Civantos, which aims to create a shelter for unprotected girls in Kenya. Infarction Productions collaborates with the NGO for the organization of this event. Asha Ismail is the founder of Save a Girl Save a Generation that works to achieve a world where women and girls are free from female genital mutilation, forced marriages and all forms of gender violence.
The concert will be the closing of the artistic and solidary cycle ‘Free’ that was inaugurated last September 13 at the Modus Operandi gallery in Madrid. The cycle has been built around the work of Sergio Lardiez, a photographic exhibition for which women of culture, among which are the actresses Maggie Civantos, Aura Garrido, Marisa Paredes, Marta Hazas, Lydia Bosch, Cecilia Freire, singers Soraya, Bely Basarte or journalist Desiree Ndjambo, have posed nude with their mothers or with their daughters to celebrate femininity, naturalness and, above all, the freedom of women. This exhibition concludes on October 23 to become itinerant and travel through Spain. Around the same have been held various activities such as concerts in acoustic, performances, microteatro, storytelling or lectures and conferences that will also conclude the same day 23.
Tickets to the concert can be purchased through the Ticketea website. The doors will open at 7:45 pm and the event will begin at 8:30 p.m. Entry is not allowed once the show has begun. Donations can also be made through the purchase of a FILA CERO ticket with which the project is contributed, but which does not give access to the room.

Save a Girl Save a Generation
Save a Girl Save a Generation works to contribute to a world where women and girls are free from female genital mutilation, forced marriages and all forms of gender violence. Founded in 2007 by Asha Ismail, she focuses her energies on creating a world in which girls and women have the power to be agents of change and contribute to education, health and leadership in their communities.
Although the reality of female genital mutilation affects 200 million girls and women in the world according to the World Health Organization, it remains totally unknown and invisible in many countries where it is barely practiced and where populations have never heard of it. In spite of everything, the terrible reality of clitoral cutting is increasingly visible thanks to the awareness campaigns and the first-person testimonies of many of its victims.
Much of the work of Save a Girl Save a Generation both in Spain and internationally focuses on raising awareness, inform and train those professional sectors that have a direct relationship with this population, such as health personnel, social workers, educators, police national, teachers, youth and judges, among many other groups. During the last years, the organization has given many conferences and workshops in educational institutions such as the Rey Juan Carlos University or the Complutense University, as well as participating in different events organized by organizations such as UNHCR, Casa África or Amnesty International, among many others. Asha Ismail, founder of Save a Girl Save a Generation, has also recently appeared on the Equality Commission of the Spanish Congress of Deputies and has visited the European Network against Female Genital Mutilation in Brussels, an institution from which Save a Girl Save a Generation has become part of organizations from 20 countries.
