CEO Message and Agency News

Dear Students,

Living in Hong Kong, we enjoy the rights to health, security and physical integrity. However, at least 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone a form of female genital mutilation (FGM). If current trends continue, 15 million additional girls between ages 15 and 19 will be subjected to it by 2030.

The procedure does not bring any health benefits to girls and women. It has painful consequences for girls and women…including death.

Say NO to this harmful practice and together let’s end FGM! Please click here to learn more.
