TOSTAN Supports Women as Agents of Change


Through education and community mobilization, Tostan supports women as agents of change in their
communities across Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, and the Gambia. Education and community engagement programs help community members identify traditional practices that are barriers to good health. The community mobilization component culminates in a public declaration renouncing the harmful practices they have identified, such as FGM. Villages participating in the program had lower proportions of women and girls subjected to this harmful practice.
