Safe Hands for Girls

Safe Hands for Girls was founded in 2013 by Jaha Dukureh to help bring an end to female genital mutilation (FGM) and other forms of gender-based violence globally. Through programs in The Gambia and Georgia, the organization provides support to survivors of FGM, mobilizes young people as leaders in the campaign to end FGM, and advocates at the national level for laws, policies, and plans of action to end FGM. Safe Hands for Girls is a leader in the global campaign to end FGM.

A 2016 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported a fact-finding mission to Sierra Leone as part of the organization's efforts to bring an end to female genital mutilation in parts of Africa.
