Network against FGM/C in Somaliland (NAFIS), is a non-political, non-governmental civil society network. NAFIS was established in late 2006 in Hargeisa by a number of local NGOs working towards the eradication of FGM/C. Currently, NAFIS has a membership of 20 organizations operating in all the regions of Somaliland. As the only nationwide network of its kind, the main purpose of NAFIS is to combat all forms of FGM/C in Somaliland through coordination and networking, policy framework, research and documentation.

The Secret of Happy Children

IN THE PAST YEAR, KINDNESS SUPPORTED PROGRAMS THAT SERVED OVER 700,000 CHILDREN IN 23 COUNTRIES. Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing. Maecenas fermentum tristique dolor sed congue venenatis ultrices augue lacus dipay aliqpisesum vestibulum

In 2017 we must demand faster action to build on the current progress. That means calling on Somaliland government to enact and enforce policies and law that protect the rights of girls and women and prevent FGM/C. It means creating greater access to support services for those at risk of undergoing FGM and those who have survived it. It also means driving greater demand for those services, providing families and communities with information about the harm FGM causes – and the benefits to be gained by ending it. And ultimately, it means families and communities taking action themselves and refusing to permit their girls to endure the violation of FGM.
