Orchid Project

Female genital cutting is a harmful practice involving full or partial removal of a girl's external genitals. It serves no medical purpose and has many harmful consequences.

Orchid Project has a vision…

… of a world free from female genital cutting (FGC). To achieve this we:

  • Advocate to ensure stakeholders resource and prioritise an end to FGC
  • Communicate the potential to end FGC within a generation and raise awareness about how, why and where FGC happens
  • Partner with organisations that deliver a sustainable, proven end to FGC

Orchid Project shares knowledge, best practice and research as part of our mission to accelerate an end to female genital cutting (FGC). We communicate the realities of FGC as well as the hope and possibility that the practice can end.  To achieve these goals, Orchid Project brings organisations together through our Knowledge Sharing Workshops (KSWs) to support those that are working towards ending FGC in their communities.
