CONNECTING PEOPLE AND IDEAS

 Young man speak out

July 2018 until April 2019


In coorporation with our English partner The Ubele Initiatieve (London) and with HIRDA (Amsterdam) and FORWARD (London) we started project Young Men Speak Out in July 2018 . 

The first  exchange was in October in London. The second exchange  was in December 2018 in Amsterdam.

The aim of this project is 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.

During this project young men from Amsterdam (Hirda) and London (Jubba Youth) between the age of 18 and 25 will be challenged to make a difference in their community to Say No To FGM!

Our participants will work on their leadership, presentation and teamwork skills and will be provided with the tools to make the subject open for discussion. 

We hope by enabling and developing relationships between 


young men from the communities most at risk from FGM that the young men will become more able to discuss this very private abuse of women and share that learning with their peers.

We also hope that the young men will be enabled to better balance the cultural conflicts between their mother countries and their European homes.

We have now completed the exchange in Amsterdam for the Young Men Speak Out project in December 2018.

During the project we developed the following conversation cards together.

These cards were used by our participants to start conversations about FGM with other young men during a large indoor soccer tournament in December 2018 in Amsterdam. The cards were also distributed to visitors of this event.

Please download these cards and use them to start your own conversation about FGM / VGV!
