We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced individual to join us as a Fundraising Coordinator of End FGM European Network and lead our fundraising efforts.


The End FGM European Network (End FGM EU) is based in Brussels and brings together 39 national organisations working in 16 European countries who are experts on female genital mutilation (FGM). End FGM EU operates as a meeting ground for communities, civil society organisations, decision-makers and other relevant actors at European level to interact, cooperate and join forces to end all forms of FGM in Europe and beyond. We put at the heart of our work grassroots voices to influence European governments and policymakers to work towards the elimination of FGM. We build our members’ capacity, offer spaces to share expertise and develop partnerships.

While dedicated to being the driving force of the European movement to end FGM, we are equally committed to build bridges and cooperation with all relevant actors in the field of FGM both in Europe and globally. In this sense, we actively promote and foster cooperation between the European movement and movements in other regions of the world.

It is estimated that over 600,000 women and girls are living with the consequences of FGM in Europe and a further 190,000 girls and women are at risk of undergoing the harmful practice in 17 European countries alone, contributing to the 230 million women and girls affected by the harmful practice worldwide.

Our Vision

A world free of all forms of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) where women and girls are empowered and can fully enjoy their human rights.

Our Mission

To be the driving force of the European movement to end all forms of female genital mutilation (FGM), joining the forces of communities and civil society organisations, and building synergies and cooperation with all relevant actors in Europe and globally.
