Help a child like Pauline escape FGM and forced marriage
By age 12, Pauline was forced to marry a man old enough to be her father. Now she has a little girl of her own to look after.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage robs girls of their childhood, of their choices, and of their futures.
As Coronavirus has moved across Africa, economic uncertainty has increased for families already living below the poverty line. Many families are forced to take matters into their own hands, cutting their girls and forcing them into child marriage.
Your urgent gift could help bring a vulnerable child into the safety and sanctuary of an ActionAid supported safe house. A safe house that has remained open in the face of the pandemic. Please don’t delay.
€52 is the cost of providing food, protection, and education for a girl at a safe house for a whole month.
