What is Female Genital Mutilation?
FGM is often motivated by beliefs about what is considered acceptable sexual behaviour. This practice is painful. It violates a girl's rights to health, security and physical integrity. Tis is a form of torture and it is cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment. It takes away the right to life when the procedure results in death and it has no benefits.
The procedure is done for non-medical reasons and has no health benefits for girls and women. Most women develope severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of new-born deaths.
According to International Labour Organisation (ILO), over 20 million victims are estimated to be in forced labour. Among these victims are children who are trapped in jobs into which they were coerced or deceived and which they cannot leave.
Protect Project helps children who have been rescued from trafficking and exploitation in United Kingdom. We also help mainly African communities and faith leaders to identify signs abuse and suspected cases of trafficking. This information is then passed on to the authorities for further action.
Several agencies are working hard to raise awareness of child abuse directly in the communities.
Protect Project is one such organisation working with parents and faith leaders towards Safeguarding African Children in the United Kingdom. We educate them how certain practices rooted in beliefs and faiths imported from countries of birth are considered abusive. It is important for everyone to realise that children have rights too and that those rights must be protected.
