Birhane was a traditional circumciser for 10 years and carried out female genital mutilation (FGM), which she thought was a good practice in shaping girls for their future marriage.

With a donation of €5 per week – €20 a month* for example, you could support ActionAid Women’s Groups to educate both men and women on the harmful impact of FGM and empower communities to reject this torture.

Be part of the change. Support women every month.

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is internationally recognised as a gross violation of human rights and a form of gender-based violence.

According to the Central Statistics Office, over 6,000 women and girls in Ireland are survivors of FGM, and there are an estimated 1,600 deemed at-risk. This figure is likely to be an underestimate.

*If you give €21 per month, ActionAid can claim tax back on your donations – at no extra cost to you. This means your €21 is worth €30 to us and could go even further in combating FGM.
