Break The Silence Week 

2018 Resources 

Break the silence week 2018 

Yes, you've made it!  Our team is so thrilled to have your support as we undertake our first annual Break The Silence Week. This annual campaign will start on February 6 (International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation) and end on February 12 of each year. This campaign was created by There Is No Limit Foundation. It mobilizes people worldwide to speak up and take action to end harmful practices and violence against individuals. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is the first campaign under this banner.

It’s a fun week, with a serious message, a week when people will ‘activate’ to shine a spotlight on FGM. We'll also carry out FGM education and training in affected communities in Guinea.


#BREAKTHESILENCE isn’t just a hashtag: It is a call to action to speak up, take action to make sure women and girls human rights are protected. This page will provide you with assets for social media and in-person activation. We are thrilled to have your support.....


…because If we get this right, we can make FGM history.
