Thursday, February 26, 2009 10:53 AM

On 6 February 2009, the Donors Working Group (DWG) on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) launched a new website aimed at abolishing the practice. The site provides a forum for sharing research, news, and resources, such as community programming ideas that can be implemented worldwide. The DWG's proposed systematic approach for abandoning FGM/C is elaborated in the organization's Platform for Action, available on its website. DWG hopes that the launch of the site will encourage the continued growth of partnerships and consensus, as resources are mobilized to combat FGM/C.
