On the 27th of March 2023, Orchid Project’s research team (previously 28 Too Many) held a Webinar launching our female genital cutting/ mutilation (FGM/C) in Nigeria Country Profile Report. 


The webinar was well attended and featured a presentation by Researcher Shannon Thomson on the report’s Key Findings. This was followed by a panel discussion exploring key themes, with experts: Dr Costly Aderibigbe, Chima Raymond Ukwa, Baliquis Bala, and Margaret Bolaji-Adebgbola, who shared valuable insight into the state of FGM/C in Nigeria, trends, and challenges. The webinar concluded with a Question and Answer session where participants clarified their understanding of the reports’ findings.

Thank you to our panellists for their insight, and indeed all those who engaged. You made the FGM/C in Nigeria Country Profile Report Launch a success! Because of the report findings, we hope to move the sector closer to designing more-effective programmes that catalyse an end of female genital cutting/mutilation in Nigeria, so girls can live free of this practice.
