With a heart for the marginalised and lost, our founder – Ann-Marie Wilson – first witnessed Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and obstructed labour in West Darfur in 2005.
28 Too Many is a values based charity funded by supporters and donations, created to help eradicate Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the twenty-eight countries within Africa where it is practised and the diaspora.
23.8 million women in Ethiopia have had female genital mutilation (FGM) which makes it the second most affected country in Africa for FGM. However despite the fact that FGM is widespread and is practised in the majority of regions and ethnics groups, research by 28 Too Many finds that attitudes are changing in Ethiopia and progress is being made to reduce and eventually eradicate this harmful practice.
A landmark resolution opposing FGM passed at the Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) 27th Triennial Conference
