COMMUNITY HEALTH AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME
AkiDwA has been raising awareness on the issue of FGM since 2001. Providing information on FGM is key in assisting families in their decision to abandon the practice. Awareness raising of professionals working with children who are at risk of FGM is also extremely important in preventing FGM before it occurs.
AkiDwA has a network of volunteer community health ambassadors throughout Ireland raising awareness on FGM in their local communities.
