Lucy-Ann Ganda – Media Challenge Winner, Sierra Leone

Lucy-Ann Ganda is one of the ten winners of the Media Challenge, ‘Reporting Sensitively on Harmful Practices’ for her video on the work of grassroots organisations to fight the practice of female genital mutilation.

Despite the dangers of FGM, the government of Sierra Leone has failed to criminalise the practice. Ganda calls for a law on FGM to protect women and girls from being cut.

Her video was broadcasted on National Television in Sierra Leone. To watch the full video, click here.
