Take the pledge. #EndFGM

Female genital mutilation, defined as cutting or removing part of the female genital organs for non-medical reasons, has zero health benefits, and can result in death.

At least 200 million women and girls alive today have suffered this violent and intrusive practice. But we can stop this: Research shows we can end FGM in one generation through education, partnerships, and empowerment.

We need your help to show world leaders that we care about protecting women and girls before more are subjected to this violent and senseless practice.

Take the pledge. Join us. Every signature will trigger a $1 donation to help UNICEF fight for the world’s most vulnerable children.

The first 25,000 signatures received for the pledge will be matched with a $1 donation. By signing up, you’ll join us in our mission to fight for the survival and development of all children. As a valued member of our community, you’ll be the first to hear about UNICEF's child survival programs and emergency relief efforts.
