THE WAR AGAINST GIRLS AND WOMEN USING FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION WITH F.A. COLE
FA Cole grew up in the coastal West African country of Sierra Leone. A survivor of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), childhood sexual assault, and rape, FA’s mission in life is to focus on empowering survivors and to provide needed tools (spiritual, financial, emotional, and educational) to help them overcome their trauma.
She has received a Global Woman Award for building a community of Support, Love, and Sisterhood for survivors of FGM and other forms of sexual violence – and the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. and Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation were so moved by Cole’s selfless act of love, they decided to partner with her to get donations for her foundation (The FAC Foundation – A Lighthouse for KIDS).
FA Cole continues her advocacy work as she works alongside legislators and law enforcement to criminalize this practice in the USA. For more info visit http://www.FACole.org
