FGM Initiative - evaluation of the first phase

The aim of the Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Initiative is to safeguard children from FGM, through community-­based preventive work. This UK­‐wide initiative was established by three independent charitable organisations. The first phase of the Initiative invested approximately £1 million in community-­based organisations across the UK over a three year period (2010-2012). This is the summary of an independent evaluation, conducted by Options UK.
