End FGM Ambassador

The Gambia

Sise Sawaneh is an award-winning journalist and activist. Being an FGM survivor just when she was 2 weeks old from the region with the highest prevalence of FGM in The Gambia, she took up the responsibility to speak for the voiceless and less opportune using the media.

She has championed the campaign to end all forms of violence against women and children through human interest stories on her newspaper articles and radio programme. Sise believes in effecting positive changes in her society, region, country and Africa at large through the use of media.
