Female Genital Cutting (FGC), also commonly called FGM (mutilation), intentionally alters or causes injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. D4G educates about the dangers of FGC and offers social alternatives to the practice.
D4G seeks to empower nationals through education. Funds raised in the US bring opportunities to women and girls to attend trade school and learn business practices.
Local deaconesses and social workers share the gospel message with at-risk women and girls, providing spiritual and emotional support.
