Tackling FGM Initiative - Final Evaluation Report

11 July 2016
  • Social Change
  • FGM

The TFGMI is an outstanding example of collaboration and partnership to achieve lasting change. It has brought together funders, influenced policy and practice and empowered often isolated communities to create local change.

Since 2010 this initiative has provided the largest non-governmental source of funding for work to tackle FGM across the UK. Over the six years since 2010, significant policy changes
7 have been achieved, and the profile of FGM has been raised. Affected communities feel more confident in tackling the practice and some 500 community advocates have been trained, along with over 6,000 professionals, making huge strides towards ending FGM.
