Some of the organizations we applaud and endorse are Venice Family Clinic, Valley Community Clinic, Women for Women International, See Jane, Tostan, Polaris Project and SAIV (Spiritual Alliance to End Intimate Violence).

Tostan

Tostan's mission is to empower African communities to bring about sustainable development and positive social transformation based on respect for human rights.

Since 1991, Tostan has brought its holistic, 30-month education program to thousands of communities in ten African countries: Burkina Faso, Djibouti, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, Somalia, and Sudan.

By participating in modules on human rights and responsibilities, democracy, and health, Tostan participants learn about the universal human right to free consent to marriage. They also learn about the negative health consequences related to giving birth at a young age. As a result of this newly acquired knowledge, Tostan participants have begun to end the traditional practices of child marriages and forced marriages in their communities. To date, over 4,203 communities in West Africa have collectively abandoned both child marriages and the practice of female genital cutting through public declarations.
