Aissata's Story

Bucking the trend of a global increase in female genital cutting (FGC), communities around the world are renouncing the practice through community-led conversations. Aissata, a Senegalese survivor of  FGC, went on to play a leading role in supporting her community's renouncement. Read her story.

This project is a collaboration between Aissata, The Orchid ProjectTostan and the PositiveNegatives' team, and is generously funded by the Brooks Foundation.
