MY STORY
200 MILLION girls and women are alive today who have had their genitals cut off.  I am participating in the 6th Walk to End FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Somalia has a 98% cut compliance rate!
Money raised from this event will be used to support the "Lisa C. Bruch Scholarship Fund" to help pay for the education of girls in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea which also have high cut rates.  Their parents are asked to sign a legally binding document that states they will not allow their daughters to be cut.  This is enforced by an annual physical exam.
FGM is the intentional removal of either all or part of the external female genitalia and is not religiously mandated.  85% of maternal and infant mortality in Africa is the result of FGM.  Presently, FGM is being practiced here on American soil, as well as the UK, and the EU.  We want it stopped in the world!
Please help by sponsoring me.
