Help protect girls from FGM

$600 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 10 people in 33 months
Little girls in Australia are being subjected to female genital mutilation. We have been working hard to stop this abuse happening to girls in Australia. 
But there is so much work to do, and this costs money. 

We are now appealing for your help.

This fundraiser is set up to help pay for the  training aimed at increasing the awareness of child protection issues around FGM and the laws in Australia.  

We are putting the call out to anyone who would like to help this campaign to protect girls from female genital mutilation.
We can't do it alone, and your donation will help significantly.
Thanks
The team at No FGM Australia

Hello everyone!
We are getting closer to our goal but have a long way to go to get funds to support Khadija and others to educate professionals working with families who are affected by FGM to better understand how to protect girls from FGM. The upcoming Family Violence Has NO Boundaries conference will be a place where FGM can be discussed as one of the forms of violence facing girls in Australia.

Also...
We have now activated our FGM Hotline which is a free call for everyone in Australia on 1800 522 707.

We have already received 3 calls in the week since the FGM hotline has been operating. There are now little girls who may now be safe due to education about how to understand risk factors and better safeguarding.
All of this needs your financial support, so if you can please share this campaign with your friends it will mean a lot to us and to the little girls of Australia.

No FGM Australia is also a registered Not for Profit charity under Australian laws and as such must maintain high level of accountablity. You can be assured that your money is going to the right place.
Thanks everyone,
Paula

Hello to all of our supporters.
Thanks to your generosity, will now be able to bring Khadija Gbla to Melbourne to talk about female genital mutilation as a form of family violence.
She will be a speaker at the Family Violence has No Boundaries conference in October, see http://www.familyviolenceconference.com/
This is very important step as it means female genital mutilation is to be acknowledged as a form of violence, usually against children.
Khadija will speak about the impact of FGM upon her own health and why little girls in Australia must be protected from this very hidden violence. FGM can happen to Aussie girls both within Australia and overseas.
Khadija will share the work being done by No FGM Australia to raise awareness with government, health professionals and educators, as well as working with communities who may still wish to practice FGM.
