Mourning the loss of Efua Dorkenoo

Monday 20 October 2014

It was with great sadness that the Orchid Project team learned of the passing of Efua Dorkenoo, OBE, over the weekend.

Efua was truly a role model for all members of the global movement to end female genital cutting and we have lost a great leader. Efua worked to end FGC for over three decades, and her paving of the way for other women and girls has enabled us all to do what we do.

Efua worked most recently at Equality Now. We are all saddened, and send our love and thoughts to those closest to Efua.
