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.
