Mojatu Foundation

September 2021
As summer makes way for autumn the weather isn't the only thing that's changing. The Mojatu newsletter has had a sparkling new makeover as we've begun to evolve our services. From now on, our monthly newsletter will include the latest news, projects and events for women and girls from our organisation, partners and beyond.

We want this newsletter to serve the community. If you would like to submit content, offer support, get involved or give us feedback please email us at:
FGM Support
We continue to raise awareness about FGM and a range of other issues including, forced marriage, modern-day slavery and domestic violence through our outreach work, reaching isolated groups who currently have limited relationships with other communities, organisations, and authorities.

If you need any support, please call our support team on 07759 927671 or email us below.
