About The Event

Break The Silence Soumou will take place in New York City on March 24-25, 2018, in commemoration of Women History Month and the United Nations 62nd Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62). 


A “Soumou” is a Malinke word for "gathering". Traditionally, the Soumou is an opportunity for building unity, creating a collective goal, and remembering the past through storytelling. It is also a moment to dream about the future and to learn lessons that will lead to realizing the dream.  

This is exactly the goal of Break The Silence Soumou. There Is No Limit Foundation and its partners invite you to a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, and cross-sectional movement building aimed at ending female genital mutilation (FGM). Break the Silence Soumou aims to unify grassroots organizations, as well as, survivors, and allies in the movement to end FGM.   

Participants will leave inspired and motivated, with new connections, skills, and strategies for working towards ending FGM in one generation.
