In 2024, nearly 4.4 million girls - or more than 12,000 each day - are at risk of female genital mutilation around the world. Unless concrete, accelerated action is taken, projections indicate that 4.6 million more girls will undergo FGM by 2030.

This knowledge brief shares promising practices, lessons and results from Spotlight Initiative’s work to end FGM drawing on insights from an analysis and synthesis of 98 reports from 2019 to 2023 across all Spotlight Initiative country and regional programmes and Trust Funds.
