SUPPORT THE #BORNPERFECT CARAVANS CAMPAIGN

Jump on the Caravan

To Protect Women and Girls

Frontline FGM Campaigners take the road across Africa with the #BornPerfect Caravans from May 2024. Every village will hear from politicians, religious leaders, musicians and medics that gender-based violence from mutilation, child marriage to domestic violence must end.

The FGM Challenge

Every 10 seconds a girl gets cut, yet less than 2% of big donor funding gets funneled towards the most effective solution: volunteer frontline grassroots movements that instill true change. Your support for #BornPerfect Caravans will go directly toward training and empowering local activists, putting an end to Female Genital Mutilation and other forms of Gender Based Violence once and for all.

The #BornPerfect Caravans

The caravan’s mission is to visit FGM-practicing villages throughout the continent to eradicate FGM through the coordinated strength of localised campaigns, activists, survivors, religious leaders and celebrities. 

During their stay, campaigners will educate the population on the health consequences of FGM and child marriage. The community is encouraged to sign the Dear Daughter pledge book. Critically, the caravan’s arrival in the village kicks off three years of cheap local radio campaigns.

Also on board the caravan are FGM and GBV survivors trained in Tree of Life trauma counselling. The caravan journey begins in May 2024 in Guinea Bissau and Mauritania.

#BornPerfect

The #BornPerfect message tells the world that every girl is born perfect, and must not be mutilated, forced into child marriage or suffer any form of physical abuse.

The Global Media Campaign spread this message in 2021, featuring international footballers advocating an end to FGM, with specific reference to their daughters. #BornPerfect Caravans builds on that momentum by galvanizing locally led movements together to take this message straight to the frontlines, in a concentrated effort to end FGM in Africa.
