ActionAid Ireland is proud to host this virtual event as part of our ongoing work to end FGM. Eradicating the practice of FGM on women and girls cannot be done alone. We would like to thank the 10,000 people who signed our petition calling on the Irish government to end FGM by 2030.
This event is an opportunity for signatories and members of the public to learn more about FGM, the challenges in fighting it, and how you can help.
We are proud to welcome our panelists including Head of Programmes in ActionAid Ireland, Triona Pender, Activist and founder of the Ifrah Foundation, Ifrah Ahmed, and ActionAid's National Women's Rights Coordinator in Kenya, Agnes Kola.
All panelists bring with them a depth of experience and expertise in championing women's rights, both in Ireland and internationally.
We are looking forward to hearing their insights. All welcome!
