FGM cannot be ended without community voices which are at the very heart of the work of The Network. Through building strong connections with communities, the Network learns the best ways on how to support women and girls at risk of FGM or who have undergone the harmful practice.The Network is comprised of organisations that either work primarily as grassroots organisations or who have grassroot programmes. These programmes work with community leaders such as Imams, doctors and survivor activists, training them to influence their wider community, encouraging them to stop the practice of FGM and warning them of the consequences.
