Every year more than 3 million girls are at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) and 14 million are married before they reach 18 years of age. For too many girls these harmful practices end their childhood and are a violation of their rights to safety, health and education. This is a truly global issue, happening across countries, cultures and religion.
On 22nd July the UK Government and UNICEF are co-hosting the first Girl Summit to look at these two issues together. As Christians we want to join them and speak out about this mistreatment of girls. Find out more at the link below and sign the pledge. Use social media to stamp this out.
