Saada's on a mission
Saada* is an extraordinary 10-year-old who lives with her family in the walled city of Harar, Ethiopia. Saada is a vital part of a girls education club at her school, which empowers children to talk openly about female issues from child marriage to sanitisation and FGM. Saada’s strong advocacy at the club has led her to help protect some of her friends from FGM, ensuring that they stay safe so they can continue learning.
Save the Children run a joint FGM prevention programme with Norwegian Church Aid in Ethiopia educating communities like Saada’s about the risks of FGM. By preventing FGM, we can help children to focus on being children and exploring a world full of possibilities.
“I am not alone. We fight this together – girls and boys. Together we’re more powerful,” says Saada.
* Name changed to keep them safe.
