28 Too Many

Type: Agency
28 Too Many undertakes research and provides knowledge and tools to those working to end FGM in the countries in Africa where it is practised and across the diaspora worldwide.

Our vision is a world where every girl and woman is safe, healthy and lives free from female genital mutilation.

28 Too Many effects change by:

1. Collating and Interpreting Data (Research)

We present data in a number of ways, primarily through Country Profile Reports and Thematic Papers, and with additional research products as required. To support our aims, we make this research available globally.

2. Influencing Influencers (Top-down approach)

Using the data we have collated, we engage key influencers, encouraging them to advocate for change (of policy, legislation, etc) within their spheres of influence.

3. Equipping Local Organisations  (Bottom-up approach)

Based on our research, we develop and distribute advocacy materials and training tools that local organisations can use to bring effective change at a community level.

Ultimately change happens when policy and legislation (top-down) aligns with community action and education (bottom-up).  Our approach is to play a catalytic role in both and to base our interventions on solid research.
