Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
FGM awareness web app launched to inform girls at risk
Petals is the UK’s first FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) web app. The app is now live and available for download. The web app is designed to allow teenagers to learn about female genital mutilation (FGM) anonymously, and get help if they are at risk, has been launched.
The app, which works across most smartphones, tablets and laptops via an internet browser, is aimed primarily at young girls living in affected communities and at risk from FGM. But it can also be used as an educational tool to teach young people and others the facts and realities of FGM.
