Within the European Week of Action for Girls, the event will showcase projects and programs providing young people the space to use their voice and creativity to contribute to the abandonment of female genital mutilation (FGM). Moreover, it will focus on the importance of having a youth-centered approach when working towards the abandonment of FGM both in Africa and Europe.
