28 Too Many

28 Too Many is a leading anti-FGM voice for Africa with both key influencers and with grassroots activists. We are part of a bigger movement for change. We believe that change happens when policy and legislation aligns with community action and education. Our approach is to play a catalytic role in both and to base our interventions on solid research. 28 Too Many research is used by UN bodies, governments, international donors, global non-profit organisations alike.

Founded 2013

    2. Influencing Influencers (Top down approach)

    Using the data we have collated, we engage key influencers, encouraging them to advocate for change (of policy, legislation, etc) within their spheres of influence.

    3. Equipping Local Organisations (Bottom up approach)

    Based on our research, we develop and distribute advocacy materials and training tools that local organisations can use to bring effective change at a community level.
