If anyone’s feeling generous, she has been invited by United Nations Youth Association of Aalborg to speak on FGM, as an experienced and brilliant activist. They cannot offer funding and she is not able to afford the travel costs herself; it’s £650. If anyone can contribute even just a few pounds, this is a very worthy cause.

If you don’t know who Hibo Wardere is, scroll down on the link above. She’s a truly inspirational woman and I hope she gets to deliver this talk.
