The End FGM E-campus project is an EU-co-funded project coordinated by MIGS (Cyprus) and implemented in partnership with AIDOS (Italy), APF (Portugal), CUT (Cyprus), End FGM European Network (EU-level), GAMS (Belgium). The 2-year project sets out to create and disseminate a free European e-learning platform on FGM for professionals dealing with the practice.
Dates: March 2023 to February 2025
The End FGM E-Campus project is co-funded (90%) by the EU DG Justice and Consumers CERV programme and seeks to contribute to the prevention and response to Female Genital Mutilation, a form of gender-based violence and human rights violation affecting 200 million people worldwide (600 000 in Europe alone). The project focuses on the capacity building of key professionals through providing knowledge and promoting good practices. End FGM EU and all project partners will be working to build, design and promote a free online platform for professionals working on FGM.
End FGM EU will be leading the dissemination activities of the project as well as supporting the content creation, design and sustainability activities.
