The Northern Virginia Business & Professional Women's Club is participating in the Walk to End Female Genital Mutilation. We are participating because this is an atrocious show full storycrime that is done to little girls. Money raised from this event will be used to help Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation open a special center for women, girls, parents and the community. Female genital mutilation is the intentional removal of the female genitalia for non-medical reasons. Many girls die daily as a result of FGM. 85% of maternal and infant mortality in Africa is the result of FGM. Now, FGM is being practiced here on American soil in many states. We want it stopped in the world, and most importantly in the United States. Please help by sponsoring our team.
Our goal this year is to raise at least $15,000. When you sponsor this year's event your sponsorship dollars or product will help the Lisa C. Bruch Scholarship Fund for girls in West Africa to prevent the continuation of female genital mutilation. The scholarship fund was named in memory of the late Lisa Bruch, a dedicated Board Advisor and Donor of Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation. Thank you!
