  • #BREAKTHESILENCE x #MenEndFGM – The importance of including men and boys in the movement to end FGM worldwide

    Men and boys often hold positions of power and influence in the communities where FGM is practiced. They can use their influence to advocate against the practice and to educate others about the harm it causes. Men and boys can also play a vital role in challenging harmful stereotypes and attitudes that contribute to the perpetuation of FGM.

  • Reflections from ICPD25 – Finale

    I came to There Is No Limit Foundation because of my love for my friends and because of my desire to contribute to something greater than myself.  The Foundation’s work is so meaningful to me as it is about the whole person: economic independence, education and health.  As many of us know, it is difficult to have any of these without all. Two quotes that stuck with me at the conference that highlight the role of power in the human rights discussion that doesn’t seem to be explicitly stated as much as I heard it at this conference.  Dr. Natalia Kanem, Executive Director of UNFPA: “It’s not about empowerment; it’s about power.”  And Dr. Gita Sen, General Coordinator, DAWN: “Speak truth to power and transform power.”

  • Reflections from ICPD25 – Part 2

    Violence robs people of their human right to self determination and well-being, leaving physical, mental, and emotional scars, damage to short term and long term health, making the path to well being that much longer and more difficult.  Lack of choice in family planning exacerbates and perpetuates other development challenges. Lack of access to resources beyond those needed for basic survival, like health and education, contributes to and maintains the vicious cycle of poverty.

    Reflections from ICPD25

    In November 2019, I traveled to Nairobi, Kenya for the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). Since then, I have had this reflective piece in draft.
