I recommend this organization who help under developed countries by providing health care in many countries. They currently have a special program helping circumcised women in US and Africa who cannot afford health care.

I have been a volunteer for CAGeM since 2008. The girls and women in the education and career training programs are so very proud of what they are learning. It gives them a sense of purpose and confidence that they can be self-reliant and can make it against all odds. This organization goes well beyond female genital mutilation. It goes to empower women and girls in all areas of their lives.

I had the chance to visit Guinea a few months ago and it is amazing the work CAGeM is doing to eradicate female genital mutilation. These campaigns are carried out by locals in villages. People nobody hears about but they are making life changing developments that are ensuring the reproductive health of their comunities. I have never seen women to dedicated to a cause.

I am in awe that female genital mutilation is still happening even in America. I thank CAGEM for their free June 16th conference that opened my eyes to the brutality these women face. I heard their voices and saw them live and I was crushed. I will support them anyway I can in their brave fight against female genital mutilation.

This past saturday June 16, I was lucky enough to attend Their Voice conference hosted by CAGeM at the New York Academy of Medicine. The conference aimed at eradicating female genital mutilation was outstanding and very emotional. Women who have survived the trauma while they were children, spoke openely about the experiences and I was deeply moved. I feel inspired to do something about this problem that I did not previously know about. I hope they could use my support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Creating awareness about female genital mutilation.

I was opportuned to attend the Cagem organized event in February 2012 to mark the International day against Female Genital Mutilation. After listening to Miss Soraya Mire speak as a surving victim of the dastardly practice, and the brief interaction I had with the Director of Cagem, Miss Aberie Ikinko, I was indeed surprised at the extent of work that needs to be done in sensitizing the public on this inhumane practice. I am and will continue to be a part of the Cagem family, especially looking at what they are doing in Nigeria. Kudos to the Cagem team especially all the volunteers who are determined to join this campaign until this evil is greatly reduced and at best eliminated. Keep up the good work Cagem!!!

I'm amazed at the passion with which CAGEM operates. I have witnessed them fight to protect children at risk of being mutilated. These little girls have been protected from a traumatic experience that would have haunted them throughout their lives. CAGEM speaks for those who cannot afford to.
