  • We began support group meetings with women from various parts of the community
  • We moved into a corporate office in Fairfax
  • We established and maintained relationships with several like-minded organizations
  • We partnered with CGCS (Council of the Great City Schools) in compiling an educational toolkit on FGM/C
  • We partnered with IAC-USA in the Vacances San Excision (Summer without Cutting)
  • We participated in several women’s conferences, such as the National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN)
  • We held a very successful Walk To End FGM in October with many like-minded organizations and government agencies present. We raised enough funds to send women to California for genital reconstructive surgery
  • We participated in the first End Violence Against Girls Summit on FGM/C, held in Washington, D.C. in December
