 FAWCO Target Project Screening 

with Filmmaker Q&A and Discussion


 You are invited to an exclusive screening on Zoom of 'In the Name of Your Daughter'.


We will be joined by the filmmaker Giselle Portenier for a Q&A session at the end of the film and by Tharien Van Eck, FAWCO Target Project Chair who will give us an overview of FGM (female genital mutilation).

In the Name of Your Daughter is the story of very brave and inspiring girls in Tanzania. Where girls as young as eight risk everything, including their lives, to follow their dreams and escape the horror of  genital mutilation.  No child, once informed of what’s ahead, volunteers to be harmed in any way.  They are bribed, cajoled, threatened, and forced. And furthermore, it is about a woman, Rhobi Samwelly, Founder and Director of Hope for Girls and Women Tanzania, who risks her own life to protect the girls.

Register in advance for this meeting with the link below. You will receive an email with your Zoom link once you have registered.
