Could the Right Innovation Prevent FGM?
A parallel event held during the Commission on the Status of Women
March 17 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am EDT
Digital age and innovation have cracked open a door to prevent FGM/C in the last mile communities of Kenya and ready to take it elsewhere. Join us in this lively discussion moderated by Caitlin LeMay from The US End FGM/C Network about the Last Mile4D’s innovative multi-pronged approach V4D system to prevent and stop FGM/C and the importance of awareness about cybersecurity risks by PurePoint International. The discussion will be enriched by the firsthand experience of a field practitioner sharing the impact of evidence-based data within the FGM/C practicing communities. The discussion is carried out by a panel of experts, which includes Mahnaz M. Harrison, founding President of Last Mile4D, Jessica Robinson, Executive Officer of PurePoint International, and Catherine Menganyi, nurse and FGM survivor turned activists.
