Help End FGM and Child Marriage
Pauline was only 10 years old when she was ‘cut’, a term often used to describe the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on young girls.
“I did not even know which part of the body was cut”, she tells us.
When she was 12, Pauline was forced to marry a man old enough to be her father. The next year, at just 13, she became pregnant. She now has a little baby girl to look after and is trapped in a cycle of poverty.
Unfortunately, Pauline’s story is not alone. Right now, the U.N predicts that an additional 2 million girls are at risk of undergoing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the next decade as school closures continue amid Covid-19 restrictions and girls are at home.
