Programs for youth

Youth is an important target group both as potential or actual victims as well as future parents. We invests a great deal of effort to sensitize youth using different entry points both in leisure and education such as theaters, sports, technician education, school, radio, etc.

Also special training are arranged aiming to bring up open-minded youth, faced to new cultural value, interests and attitudes.

One of such programs is introducing the young generation with automotive sphere, where famous racers attract young mids to the thrilling world of vehicles, car grilles, motors, wheels and other car accessories. Everybody had an opportunity to try himself as a driver, mechanician and engineer at once.

Our Automotive, Sports and other sorts of Training and Information Campaigns are targeted to reach the public through a wave of successive trainings. The trainings are specified to the target groups, being women, men, community leaders, religious leaders, traditional birth attendants, health personnel and media. The project aims at changing the attitudes of these target groups for them to become agents of change.

Programs for religious leaders

Religion greatly influences the society thats why we has developed special programs for religious leaders to reveal the mistaken beliefs about the role that religion plays in FGM practice. Symposium for CAR Religious Leaders was arranged, where a three-year Action Plan (2008-2010) was developed to combat FGM. The statements in this Declaration include the assertion that FGM has no place in the CAR Islamic or Christian faiths and it also calls for the signatories to commit themselves to the struggle for the total elimination of FGM, not just in their respective countries but wherever it exists.

The organization's custom vehicles didn't stay in one place for long. The car wheels crossed the country and as the result lots of similar forums took places in other districts of continent. Two symposia held in 2005 for English and French-speaking Religious Leaders in Egypt and Burkina Faso.

The participants were 80 religious leaders from 30 countries. After serious analysis of the FGM problem, they made an open statement (in what became known as the Ouagadougou Declaration) of their opposition to the practice and adopted a decision to set up a network in order to continue the campaign in a sustained and coordinated manner.
