FGM/C Workshop No topics

Women's College Hospital in Toronto is working with Uzima to host workshops for health care providers. In turn, they are trained to facilitate further workshops for their colleagues. The workshops inform providers on what the practice of female genital mutilation/cutting is and provides resources that assist them as health care providers. As a result, they are able to cater to their patients affected by the practice of FGM/C and consult with each other and other professionals.

Every year Uzima hosts a meeting every year in Toronto in order to update its members on the progress the organization's work has been making annually. Although virtual meetings are held throughout the year, this provides an opportunity to meet in person and host guests. In turn, Uzima benefits from networking, brainstormed ideas, guest speaker speeches, and much more. Therefore, Uzima would love to thank those who attended.
