Tobe Levin is advising Terre des Femmes
Sep 09, 2013

Tobe Levin, representing the EuroNet-FGM and UnCUT/VOICES Press, is advising Terre des Femmes, the largest women’s human rights association in Germany, as it administers a European Union DAPHNE Grant worth more than 340,000 Euros shared among RISK (Sweden), FORWARD (UK), FSAN (The Netherlands), and Plan-Germany. The multi-year project trains “Change Agents” to help abolish FGM in Europe and in Africa by fostering a new openness about the tradition within affected immigrant communities. According to a recent EIGE (European Institute for Gender Equality) study, European host countries whose health care and other social services confront the ravages of FGM must intensify cooperation and eliminate the threat to tens of thousands of young girls.
