The aim of Young Men Speak Out project was to encourage young men and boys to raise the topic of FGM in their families and to provide boys with the understanding and skills to challenge the myth that men prefer women who have been cut.
By enabling and developing relationships between young men from the communities, most at risk from FGM, the young men were able to become more able to discuss this very private abuse of women and share that learning with their peers. We hoped that the young men will be enabled to better balance the cultural conflicts between their mother countries and their European homes.
This project was co-funded by European Commission within Erasmus+ Programme. It was delivered from May 2018 to April 2019 in the UK and the Netherlands.
