Female Genital Mutilation: Frequently Asked Questions: A Campaigner’s Guide for Young People

YPSO (Young People Speak Out) is a project within FORWARDUK’s Youth Program which trains young people from black and minority ethnic (BME) communities to become campaigners and peer-educators on violence against women and girls, including FGM.

The program provides a safe space for young women and men aged 16–24, to develop their ideas, gain skills and explore ways for supporting themselves and those at risk. The program uses youth-friendly and culturally sensitive methods including participatory training, workshops, film screenings and creative and interactive events to raise awareness
