Diakonia - People change the world

International Women's Day


Global event

"Many people didn’t trust me and I was regularly thrown out of people's homes when I told them what I wanted to talk about. But I didn't give up. Through meetings and training programmes, people started to understand what I was talking about, and they started listening to me and trusting me," says Ghada.

Ghada works bravely and stubbornly together with others to give young women in Egypt power over their bodies and lives. Her dedicated work has paid off. The presence of genital mutilation has declined radically in the region where she and Diakonia’s partner BLACD are active.
