The END FGM European Network was created in Rome on 23 May 2014 and will be officially launched in 2015!

Eleven founding members from across Europe elected the Board, who are as follows:

President – Naana Otoo-Oyortey (Forward UK)

Vice-President – Clara Caldera (AIDOS, Italy)

Treasurer – Fabienne Richard (GAMS, Belgium)

The END FGM European Network will continue the work of the END FGM European Campaign by placing FGM high on the EU agenda. Here are some of the areas the network will work on using a human rights based approach:

  • Ensuring the implementation and evaluation of the European Commission Action Plan on ending female genital mutilation
  • The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence
  • Facilitating good practice and sharing resources to end FGM in Europe and beyond
