Mojatu Foundation Newsletter 

 

Happy New Year from the Mojatu Family. Welcome to 2022! We know that this year will bring you joy and happiness and for all the communities that we support. Luckily, we have some exciting news for you for this year! We will have the FGM Zero Tolerance Conference in February, being OISC registered and most of all the PRTA Award recognition for our work in FGM Training and Ambassadors.
Our mission will never change and we will never stop supporting women and girls in various aspects and providing them support on a daily basis. Therefore, we are continually fighting to protect women and girls through our ongoing projects and programmes. This month's newsletter includes our latest projects, news, courses and events for women and girls from our organisation, partners and beyond💜

FGM Zero Tolerance Conference

This event marks the FGM Zero Tolerance Day 2022, an awareness day that takes place to raise awareness about FGM. This year’s event reminds this  urgency and calls organizations and individuals to intensify and improve cooperation, efforts and commitments for the eradication of this crime within our generation as well as raising awareness. The conference will bring together experts, practitioners, professionals, survivors and community members working towards gender equality and the elimination of FGM, and will discuss actual initiatives and concrete ways in which grassroot organizations and professionals can work together to effectively put an end to FGM.

Please sign up using the Eventbrite link below.

FGM Support

We engage directly with women and men in communities to raise awareness of the risks of FGM. We support them through training and confidence building – which enable them to advocate for change in their communities. Mojatu Foundation will hold Community FGM Ambassador training sessions in order to build a team of community-based volunteers dedicated to the abolition of female genital mutilation. We are looking for community members and people working in BAME communities where girls and women are living with the effects of or at risk of undergoing FGM to join us.

PRTA Award


Mojatu Foundation achieved this prestigious award for their work in Female Genital Mutilation, 'End FGM Together', Faith Leader and Young Ambassadors' training.  The programme exceeded expectations with 44 ambassadors going through the training, 16 faith leaders and 28 young persons.  This training was ground breaking and we hope to continue with the programme in the future.  Funded by the Home Office, BSBT (Building a Stronger Britain Together), we expanded our reach into communities we would not otherwise have been able to reach, and thank all those involved in the training. The award will be received in London by Julia Paul and Cecily Mwaniki on 28 April 2022, COVID 19 allowing.  Well done team!
