En l’honneur de la Journée internationale de la femme, nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre dans notre engagement à préserver la santé et le bien-être des femmes et des jeunes filles. Le lien suivant vous permet d’accéder à l’une de nos vidéos centrées sur les implications sanitaires des MGF/E.


GRAG est une organisation à but non lucratif qui œuvre pour la promotion et à la protection des populations vulnérables. Par le biais de la recherche stratégique et appliquée, mais aussi à travers la formation et le plaidoyer, GRAG cherche à identifier et à cibler des domaines d’amélioration pour des initiatives de programmes efficaces dans toute l’Afrique subsaharienne.

GRAG s’est engagé à étudier les déterminants sociaux de la santé, y compris les normes liées au genre, qui ont un impact sur la santé sexuelle et reproductive des femmes et des filles. Ses projets en cours couvrent un large éventail de questions clés, notamment celles concernant les jeunes et les adolescents, la nutrition, la planification familiale et la violence sexiste en Afrique de l’Ouest. Aussi, GRAG met en œuvre des stratégies d’intervention en réseau contre les normes sociales néfastes, y compris les Mutilations Génitales Féminines/Excision (MGF/E) au Sénégal. Grâce à ces initiatives, GRAG a élaboré des documents de plaidoyer qui mettent en exergue les raisons positives pour lesquelles les communautés abandonnent les MGF/E et favorisent le dialogue intergénérationnel.

Les leçons tirées du Sénégal sont en train d’être utilisées pour développer des stratégies adaptées à d’autres contextes, notamment en Gambie, en Guinée, au Burkina Faso, au Mali, entre autres.

In honor of International Women’s Day, please join us in our commitment to safeguarding the health and wellbeing of women and young girls. The following link provides access to one of our videos centered around the health implications of FGM/C.

GRAG is non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of vulnerable populations. Through strategic and applied research, training, and advocacy, GRAG seeks to identify and target areas of improvement for effective program initiatives throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
GRAG is committed to addressing social determinants of health, including gender-related norms, which impact the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls. Ongoing projects cover a wide range of key issues, including youth/adolescents, nutrition, family planning, and gender-based violence in West Africa. Accordingly, GRAG is implementing network intervention strategies against harmful social norms, including Female Genital Mutilations/Cutting (FGM/C) in Senegal. Through these initiatives, we have developed advocacy materials that highlight positive reasons for communities to abandon FGM/C, and promote intergenerational dialogue.

Lessons learned from Senegal are being used to develop strategies relevant to other contexts, notably in The Gambia, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Mali, among others.

GRAG Learning Center for Vulnerable People

GRAG Learning Center for Vulnerable People

GRAG Residential Learning Center for Vulnerable People is designed to empower some of the most vulnerable members of West Africa’s population.

The center will employ innovative strategies to address issues of advocacy, basic needs, gender, social norms, discrimination and social justice. Its aim is to provide a safe space for minority groups, including men who have sex with men (MSM), male and female sex workers, women who have sex with women (WSW) among other marginalized groups.

A 9-month pilot phase will be implemented, after which the GRAG team will carry out an evaluation in order to orient the development of an extension phase. Lessons learned from this evaluation will be used to extend program throughout Senegal and its replication in other countries across West Africa.
