JAHA’S NOBLE PEACE PRICE NOMINATION

23

When Jaha Dukureh was a week old, she survived female genital mutilation (FGM) in The Gambia.
When she was 15 years old, she was forced into marriage and sent to New York to be with her husband.
In the United States, Dukureh spearheaded a campaign, which led the administration of former President Barack Obama to conduct further research into FGM.
As a UN Goodwill Ambassador against FGM and the head of Safe Hands for Girls, an NGO supporting survivors in Africa, she now campaigns in The Gambia, where she lives today.
Jaha Dukureh has just received a noble peace price nomination and Gambia is proud of her.
