Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a procedure that involves altering or injuring female genitalia for non-medical reasons.
It is estimated that almost 200 million women and girls worldwide have undergone some form of FGM.
FGM has been recorded in 30 countries with Somaliland having one of the highest prevalence rates in the world at 98% for women and girls aged between 15 - 49 years old.
Hope on the horizon documents the hard work IPPF member association SOFHA (Somaliland Family Health Association) is doing within the local community to help change minds and eventually bring an end to female genital mutilation (FGM).
Slowly, but surely, attitudes are changing.
