Short Description:

Overall goal

Weibliche Genitalbeschneidung ist in allen Ländern am Horn von Afrika gang und gäbe. Die italienische NGO "No Peace Without Justice" organisiert gemeinsam mit dem Gesundheitsministerium von Djibouti eine regionale Konferenz zum Thema, wobei vor allem die religiösen Würdenträger zu Wort kommen sollen. Ziel der Konferenz ist ein Konsens der Vertreter des Islam der teilnehmenden Länder (Djibouti, Somaliland, Somalia, Eritrea, Äthiopien) über die Abkehr von der Praxis der weiblichen Genitalbeschneidung.

Der Vertragspartner KMG ist eine lokale äthiopische NGO, die sich in mehreren Distrikten der südlichen Region bereits große Verdienste in der Bekämpfung der weiblichen Genitalbeschneidung und anderer gesundheitsgefährdender traditioneller Praktiken erworben hat. Das Projekt deckt die Kosten der Teilnahme von maximal fünf äthiopischen Partizipanten an der Konferenz ab (die Direktorin von KMG, ein weiterer Mitarbeiter der Organisation, sowie 3 Vertreter des äthiopischen "Supreme Islamic Council"). Besonderer Wert wird auf die Teilnahme einflussreicher Männer gelegt.
