How MF works

Our main duties are adult and child education, health promotion, prevention, livelihood security, rehabilitation, constitutional work against corporal punishment, breast ironing and female genital mutilation.

Education

Adult Education

The educational program of our foundation for adults comprises of creating awareness about the abuses in the form of female genital mutilation, breast ironing, corporal punishment, home violence and their consequences. On this, we offer, among other things, seminars, theatre acts and information events. Here, we reach out to parents who need to learn, for instance, to speak openly with their children about contraception, prevention and other problems instead of practicing female genital mutilation and breast ironing. Most of these parents believe that parenting with violence is normal. We, on the other hand, want to highlight other non-violent ways and make it clear that parenting without violence is not only possible but also much better.

Child Education

We provide a broad range of support to the children involved, making it possible for them to attend school. We assist the parents by paying the children’s school fees, buying their school books, school uniforms, pens, pencils and other school supplies. Your support counts!

Health and Rehabilitation

Our field of work, Health and Rehabilitation, is divided into two main parts: We, on the one hand, offer free hospital visits to the affected, assisting them in acute health threats caused by these abuses. On the other hand, we offer psychological support which is very important, to help the affected families get back together. Through this support, the affected will be able to regain the efficiency of overcoming their traumata and get back to their normal, happy lives. It`s also very important that the victims know who to turn to in times of need for assistance. Your support counts!

Prevention - prevention helps

One important work-field of MF is prevention. With prevention we mean, above all, creating awareness about the different types of abuses and their psychological and physical consequences. For that reason, we organize information events, hold seminars and conferences, organize charity events, run online campaigns, play small theatre acts and much more.

Livelyhood Security - A small amount of money can make a big difference

Another significant area of our work is securing the livelihood of the Women affected. We support them with their education to be able to acquire the required qualification in order to get a job and become independent financially.

Constitutional Work – we interfere

The activities of MF are not only limited to helping with supporting the victims and preventive enlightenment on the ground but we equally consider female genital mutilation and breast ironing as well as other child abuses to be a political problem. Therefore, we are appealing to the affected governments to ban these inhumane practices. Female genital mutilation is mostly practiced in Asia and Africa. However, we see a global problem in it. Even in Europe, there are many cases where females are still being subjected to genital mutilation and other forms of abuse such as breast ironing. This is mostly due to the fact that immigrants take their cultural practices along, wherever they go. Generally, violence should not play a role in parenting but it does. For instance, corporal punishment in schools is still lawful in many countries and in all continents of the world.
