Music Around The World, Benefit Concert with Herman Little & Friends End Female Genital Mutilation Now!!! With our recent travels abroad, it has awaken a bigger global consciousness in us. Many like us had only heard of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) as something practiced hundreds of years ago in Africa, India, China, etc. It was recently brought to our attention that not only is this still being actively practiced today in these countries, but there are over 400,000 cases here in the US. YES, IN 2016!!!! Our non profit, The Vine, connects resources to needs, through strategic partnerships, resulting in wholeness for families and communities. The Vine, has developed a program, Black Pearl, to fight against, FGM, this heinous act and other female based offenses. It's time we teach our young girls to stand up for themselves, find their voice and be great! Now we have to fight for our sisters and daughters who have no voice, because tradition says this is right. Well, it's not right and it must stop in this generation! Tradition is no longer a good enough reason to mutilate these young girls. We are here to take a stand and take action! The Vine along with M.U.S.I.C. will be traveling to Kenya, in December to lobby, speak, campaign and perform at a benefit concert against FGM. With your support we can create a safe haven for these girls, provide them education, and give their families an economic alternative to doing this to their daughters. We ask that you pledge $2 today, to help a girl protect her pearl! To support and donate to the cause, please go to: https://www.gofundme.com/thevine Or contact Chris & Teal Zimmerman at [email protected] We welcome and appreciate your support in anyway that you can assist! #Music #TheVine #BlackPearl #EndFGMNow #StrategicPartners

FGM, or cutting, as it is also sometimes known, is the removal of the external female genitalia. The procedure has no health benefits, but can cause great harm and serious health complications for those who undergo the procedure. Besides causing severe pain, the practice has immediate and long-term consequences for the health of women and girls, including complications during childbirth, which could endanger the lives of both mother and child. Through this animation, Al Jazeera takes the reader on a journey to understand how the cycle of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) continues: following a girl who undergoes FGM as she grows up and becomes a mother and chooses, like her mother and grandmother before her, to perform FGM on her baby daughter.

United Nations, New York - 21st Century - Television Series (Programme 5) There's a feeling in the air that something important is about to happen. A celebration is under way for the girls who will soon become women in the eyes of their people: the Kuria in southern Kenya. It's a rite of passage rooted in at least two thousand years of tradition. Some call it "circumcision", others: female genital mutilation, or FGM. Whatever the name the reality is the same. Later that day, girls under the age of sixteen will have their clitorises cut out. Every day, six thousand girls, many of them in sub-Saharan Africa, will endure procedures like this one.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) also known as circumcision or cutting continues to be practiced widely on young girls, with numbers increasing during the summer school holidays when girls are taken out of the UK to be cut. FGM is illegal in the UK and is child abuse. Despite this and the increasing number of campaigns for FGM to be stopped, the practice still continues in many communities. This NHS film explores the severe long term health impacts FGM has on women and girls and considers why it still happens and what communities can do to end the practice for good.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. The procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths. More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia where FGM is concentrated1. FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15. FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.
