BLACD has trained more than 30 volunteers from target villages to mobilize their communities, raise awareness of the physical and mental impacts of female genital mutilation, and reject the practice.
As a result of its efforts, BLACD reports that 1,363 of 1,500 at risk girls identified were saved from female genital mutilation between the years 2004 and 2007 -- echoing 2007 statistics from Egypt's Ministry of Health and Population showing that female genital mutilation among girls aged 10 to 18 years was down to 53 percent.
