    • Field Producer

    Grace endured female genital mutilation (FGM) as a girl, and the painful experience haunted her. Years later, as an accomplished scholar, she founded Hope Foundation for African Women to end the life-threatening tradition in Kenya, starting from within the community where it happened to her. Grace’s work is inspired by her belief that FGM survivors and perpetrators, sometimes one and the same, hold the key to ending FGM.
