week we shared F.A. Cole’s statement about the event next week with you. This week, we share what Aisha Kamara had to
say about GWPF: “Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. is a Foundation that fights for women’s
rights, and is the voice for women who cannot speak for themselves, the young,
and the old that have gone through the violence of Female Genital Mutilation.
Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation has created an awareness to help fight
current cutting, and to put an end to Female Genital Mutilation practice. They
specialize in services that help women deal with the reality of what has
happened to them as children, and how to cope with daily life as victims of
FGM. The Executive Director of Global Woman P. E. A.C. E. Foundation is a
phenomenal woman. She always goes above and beyond to take the time, and the
patient to help you get through whatever it is that you are going through,
including the emotional part of dealing with Female Genital Mutilation, and by
helping you gain your confidence back. I
am very thankful to work with this amazing organization. Because of Global
Woman P.E.A.C.E Foundation, I can now share my story with the world, and help
impact other women who are going through the same or similar situation. I feel truly blessed to be a part of an
amazing journey in uplifting the inner souls of women, and to make them feel
beautiful from within.”
countdown continues. Would you please
join us? Aisha will be there, both Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, and
you will have the opportunity to speak with her in person!
