Stop Mutilation e.V.
The main focus of our work is with the help of affected women and the protection of girls from the mutilation of their genitals. We carry out projects in Germany and in the Somalian region of Puntland. In North Rhine-Westphalia, we have the only counseling center for women and girls who are affected or threatened by genital dissection. We go to the schools and clarify to young people about the topic of female genital circumcision. We also organize apprenticeships for educational, medical and legal specialists in order to inform and raise awareness. In Somalia, we are building a women’s clinic and conducting reconnaissance campaigns, re-training of female mothers and a school project for refugee children.
