ONDEDESIGNS is determined to help eradicate Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) by donating 5% of profits to organizations that fight FGM.

What is FGM?
“Female Genital Mutilation (often referred to as FGM) is a destructive operation, during which the female genitals are partly or entirely removed or injured with the aim of inhibiting a woman’s sexual feelings. Most often the mutilation is performed before puberty, often on girls between the age of four and eight, but recently it is increasingly performed on babies who are only a couple of days, weeks or months old.” (Source: Desert Flower Foundation)

Where is FGM performed?
FGM is mainly performed in Africa. The word “mainly” already implicates that this barbaric ritual is performed worldwide. According to the desert flower foundation more than 200.000.000 women are affected by FGM worldwide with around 1.000.000 women and girls in Europe.

What can I do?
Organizations like the Desert Flower Foundation offer sponsorship programs where you can save a girl from FGM and help support her family.

By ordering your ONDE Bag Belt, you will help to support organizations like the Desert Flower Foundation. ONDEDESIGNS will donate 5% of profits to the fight against FGM!

Let´s combine our forces to keep women and girls across the world safe!
