min. 250 EU stakeholders benefit through communication and advocacy activities

around 140.000 of women and girls at risk of FGM and those whoare affected, benefit through better knowledge, greater awareness and behaviour change leading to better prevention and support

Expected results

Individual project participants are empowered to act as catalysts of behaviour change (CHANGE Agents) community leaders (CHANGE Champions) are empowered to act as antiFGM advocates at the local/national/EU level.

African migrant communities, inparticular girls/women at risk of FGM and those already affected, benefit from community assessment and evaluation, awareness raising, dialogue and implementation of behaviour change activities; pressure on families to continue FGM is reduced; community voices are better integrated into local / nationallevel debates on the abandonment of FGM

Partners and other NGOs have better knowledge onstrategies to promote abandonment of FGM in practising communities in the EU

Local/national authorities, EU stakeholders and other relevant actors (e.g., key professionals) receive advice on how to better prevent FGM
