Female Genital Mutilation has been a major concern in our community and in honor of the International day for zero tolerance on FGM marked on 6th February. Join us as we build solutions to tackle some of the issues faced by our fellow ladies.
Lets join our hands together to help curb FGM!
About this event
Communication is a vital part in the FGM narrative. Thus Africa's Talking APIs can be used to innovate and build solutions to tackle the major challenges associated with FGM, such as spreading awareness about the harmful effects of the practice, providing support for survivors and facilitating communication between organizations and communities working to end FGM. By leveraging technology, these solutions can reach a larger audience and help bring positive change.
As many as your creativity would permit.
