About The Girl Generation: Support to the Africa-led Movement to End FGM/C:
The UK Government (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office - FCDO) has a vision of a world free from Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) by 2030, in line with the SDGs. A programme has been established entitled ‘Support to the Africa-led movement (ALM) to end FGM/C’ (The Girl Generation) to contribute to global efforts to achieve that vision. Year 3 of programme implementation began in April 2023.
This programme supports and builds the capacity of the ALM to end FGM/C at multiple levels, working in partnership with the broader end FGM/C movement, including grassroots Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), women’s and girls’ movements, national and devolved governments, etc.
The programme includes two consortia working in close collaboration. Options leads a consortium including Amref Health Africa, ActionAid UK, Orchid Project, ACCAF and University of Portsmouth to implement the ‘Support to the ALM to End FGM/C’ programme. Population Council is implementing ‘The FGM/C Data Hub: Data and Measurement Support to the ALM to end FGM/C’.
Options is seeking a consultant to strengthen technical delivery and reporting/documentation across its Girl Generation programme.
