Finally Girls Matter: Combating Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in the New York area

As part of a citywide effort to prevent FGM/C of girls sent to their parents’ home countries during school vacations, we are looking to establish a database of organizations and individuals who can assist by distributing information and/or organizing events about this issue: expatriate community groups, churches, mosques, health clinics, daycare centers, school nurses and counselors, teachers, ethnic restaurants, food stores, hair salons and other businesses, etc. If you have information, please contact

We are collaborating with UMACA (USA-Mali Charitable Association) in their campaign Finally Girls Matter!

Please come support them and enjoy some Malian cultural performances on May 26, 12pm- 2pm in Washington Square Park.
