Don’t Cut Her Short

Help us end female genital cutting

Female genital cutting affects at least 4.1 million girls every year. Not only does the practice have often devastating physical and psychological impacts on girls and women, but it can also cut short her life chances, her education, and her inclusion in the economy.

2020 marks the start of a 10 year countdown to reach the global Sustainable Development Goal of ending FGC by 2030. We must accelerate progress on ending the cut thirteen-fold if we’re to reach our 10 year target and protect girls. 

As our flagship campaign for 2020Orchid Project has launched the #DontCutHerShort campaign, to mobilise public support for a growing global movement.

Change is already happening. Brave communities around the world are abandoning FGC and leading the way. We need your support now to accelerate an end to cutting. Show your support for girls and the movement to end FGC by signing up today.

The Gift Aid scheme means that any donations you make to Orchid Project will be worth 25% more at no cost to you. To enable us to reclaim the tax on all your donations in the last four years, and any future donations you make, please confirm that you agree with the following statement.

I confirm that I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

Please notify us if you want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, or, if you no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your self-assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code.
