The #FrontlineEndingFGM movement began life in 2014, as  the Global Media Campaign.  It was then focused  on helping local, women’s organisation use their local media to help end FGM. 

But, recognising that the lack of funding reaching these local women’s organisatons (less than 2 per cent of donor funding)   the Global Media Campaign expanded their media training to help set up #FrontlineEndingFGM to campaign for more donor and international aid agency funds to go these  local (mostly women led ) organisations.   

#FrontlineEndingFGM gets most of it support from the United Nations Population Fund,  UNFPA and the US Wallace Global Fund and has over 1000 frontline organisations and grassroots activists working in 15 countries across Africa.

Work in progress on the definitive guide to all the  #FrontlineEndingFGM’s organisations  on the  #Frontline Feminist Directory below.

The Directory which has been built with the support of UNFPA and the Wallace Global Fund will be officially launched at Women Deliver in Kigali from 17th-20th of July.
