We are an international organization committed to the eradication of female genital mutilation (FGM). Our campaign focuses on developing and implementing educational programs to eradicate FGM and assisting victims (see Restoring Victims
). We also pursue the introduction of legislation banning FGM. If you would like CAGeM to present an educational workshop at your institution/organization please contact us
We are currently conducting research on the health effects of FGM and on the current statistical distribution of the practice. Immediate consequences of the practise, such as infections, are usually only documented when women seek hospital treatment. Therefore, the true extent of immediate complications is unknown. CAGeM is currently cunducting research to document the immediate complications. To participate in our study please contact us
CAGeM is supported entirely by volunteers and public donations. We cannot do this without your help. Please volunteer or donate today.
