End FGM European Network
The End FGM European Network is a European umbrella network of 16 organisations working to ensure sustainable European action to end female genital mutilation.
A world where women and girls are empowered and free from all forms of gender-based violence, in particular female genital mutilation, where their voices are heard, where they can enjoy their rights and make informed choices about their lives.
The network creates an enabling environment for coordinated and comprehensive action by European decision-makers to end FGM and other forms of violence against women and girls. The network facilitates the synergy of diverse organisations and the active participation of rights holders and affected communities. The network provides space where member organisations can share their experience and diverse skills.
END FGM places the following principles at the core of its work:
Respect and promotion of human rights and gender equality
Active participation of rights holders in decision-making and activities
Use and promotion of empowering language framed in human rights terminology
Ownership by member organisations
Accountability, integrity, transparency and professionalism in all its work
