Integrate Bristol is one of just 20 organisations from around the world to receive an inaugural With and For Girls Award. The award is part of a global initiative to identify and support local organisations working with and for girls.
Integrate Bristol, based in Redfield, was recognised for its work to promote gender equality and raise awareness about the risks of female genital mutilation (FGM).
The charity is led by teenage girls and promotes gender equality through creative projects. These projects are specifically designed to raise awareness and provide education about the risks of female genital mutilation.
Integrate Bristol has educated 2,500 young people about the risks of FGM. The charity also delivers sessions for frontline professionals in schools, colleges and universities by producing lesson plans and videos on violence against women and girls and FGM.
