(I)NTACT eV is an aid organization dedicated to the right of girls and women to an intact body. For almost twenty years, we have been successfully fighting the cruel tradition of female genital mutilation in Africa.

The association was founded at the beginning of 1996 in Saarbrücken. The occasion for the engagement and the founding of the association was an official visit by our chairman Christa Müller in Benin, where she learned about the suffering of the girls and women concerned. She was asked for help by the wife of the then Benin state president, and she began to raise funds to support local initiatives against the cruel ritual in Benin.

Since its inception, the association has been able to protect numerous girls in West Africa from mutilation. In Benin, an important success was achieved in 2005: the end of the tradition of female circumcision was solemnly proclaimed in a state act. In 2012, the people of Togo were able to celebrate the abolition of tradition.

There are numerous forms of ritual violence that women and girls are subjected to worldwide. Violence and violations of human rights that are inflicted on them include, among others, the mutilation of their genitals, in the language of the World Health Organization: female genital mutilation: FGM.

Our international and non-profit organization was established in 1998 to engage globally in ending this harmful form of traditional practices. We support the most diverse projects in the prevalent countries, which are suitable to strengthen women and are active in the country to support women who have suffered FGM as well as girls who are at risk.

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.
