Welcome to The Purple Chair!
During the past years, our amazing Youth Ambassadors have worked tirelessly to raise awareness on FGM at national and European level. When coming together, the group realised it was hard to reach out to the younger generations. There is still a huge taboo surrounding FGM and the Youth Ambassadors wanted to connect with other young people to share their ideas and knowledge on women’s health issues.
This is how The Purple Chair is born! Launched in May 2020, the YouTube Series consists of 10 videos that cover extremely important and different topics.
