Our TaskForce for effective prevention of FGM is a politically independent, human rights organization.

We campaign for secure and measurable protection of children against mutilation – because every girl has the right to be protected against this avoidable act of violence.

TaskForce occupies a Watch-Dog position: We analyse the behaviour of organizations/institutions and politicians regarding their possibilities of preventing genital mutilation and protecting girls, identify feasible solutions and demand their implementation.

As a nationwide network providing information about genital mutilation and one-on-one consulting, the TaskForce is a professional organization recognized by the Ministerial Conference of the Federal States.

Furthermore, the TaskForce is part of the campaign “Protection of girl-children from Female Genital Mutilation” that stands up for a sustainable, consistent protection of girls in development aid projects.
