TRADITIONS AND A HARMFUL PRACTICE
End FGM Eu
The CHAIN for Change Campaign is designed towards affected communities and highlights the consequences of FGM and EFM. Building on the concept of ”local intervention chains” at the core of the CHAIN project, the videos aim at convincing parents and affected communities to stop the generational cycle of violence by saying “No” to both harmful practices.
Traditions and a Harmful Practice is based on the difference between traditions - which are to be celebrated - and FGM, which is a harmful practice that must end. Characters come together to debunk the false justifications behind the practice and warn about its severe consequences.
A co-production between Boniato Studio, The Ink Link and End FGM Eu, and with the participation of affected community members to raise awareness without judgement and with a care for cultural sensitivity. With the support of the European Commission and EqualBrussels.
Let’s take care of them, let’s stop FGM.
One generation can break the cycle.
