Good news! According to the UN Inter-Agency and Expert Group on the SDG Indicators, the ‘relevant countries only' caveat has been removed from the FGM indicator (which details what will be measured and funded).
This is important because FGM is a global issue and is not limited to certain “practicing” countries.
The Girl Generation thanks our supporters who helped our advocacy efforts, as well as our partners at Equality Now and Orchid Project for the large role they played in securing FGM’s place in the #GlobalGoals.
Thank you for standing with us, and for making sure countless girls aren’t left behind.
We will continue to keep you updated about the #GlobalGoals going forward.
