An estimated 130 million women have undergone genital mutilation (FGM), and an additional three million girls are submitted to the practice every year.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH - on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) - has been active in international efforts to stop female genital mutilation since May 1999.
