International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation

The 6th of February marks the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, to raise awareness of the issue and to encourage actions to end its practice. To mark the day we have picked out our four top shots to end FGM.

Each photo was taken on one of our FGM projects in Kenya. They highlight the role CWB plays in supporting and developing future leaders from within the communities we work in partnership with. These leaders help to promote equality and change, and use cricket as a tool to start that conversation. This is crucial in forming a well rounded and sensitive response to a challenging problem.
