Alternative Rite of Passage is the most effective intervention in the fight to end Female Genital Mutilation. It is estimated that more than 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone the female genital mutilation in their countries. An estimate of 3 million girls are at risk of undergoing the FGM every year. FGM violates a number of human rights of women and girls. Since FGM involves the removal of healthy sexual organs without medical necessity and is usually performed on adolescents and girls, often with harmful physical and psychological consequences, it violates the rights to non-discrimination, health, and bodily integrity. Although FGM is not undertaken with the intention of inflicting harm, its damaging physical, sexual, and psychological effects make it an act of violence against women and children.
