Association for the Alleviation of Poverty (Yemen)
SHARE Sponsored Programs:
2002:The SHARE Institute awarded a mini-grant to the Association for the Alleviation of Poverty to collect qualitative data on the forms and different techniques of female genital mutilation (FGM). Data for forty cases of FGM were submitted for the study. Another mini-grant was provided to increase the size of the study sample. This is just one way that the SHARE Institute continues to educate and inform the public about FGM; other methods include the use of theater, songs, poetry, television and health education sessions.
