Funding brief: This challenge is looking for innovative interventions to bring about a sustained change in attitudes and social norms towards ending FGM/C.
They are looking for interventions that can demonstrate they have effected a sustained change in attitudes and social norms at community level towards ending the practice of female genital mutilation/cutting. This includes the attitudes of practitioners, boys and men, families, community leaders and the broader community.
Indicators of success include reported change in attitude, reduction in cutting, practitioners taking on a new role in the community and uncut girls not experiencing social or economic disadvantages or discrimination as a result of not being subject to the practice. Additionally, young parents not allowing their daughters to be cut, young men expressing their interest in marrying uncut women and influential community figures declaring their support for total abandonment are meaningful indicators.
