Diane Walsh painting End FGM _The Guardian - 2011

 

This painting sits at the office of the ‘Global Alliance Against Female Genital Mutilation’ (known as: GA-FGM) located at UN Geneva headquarters campus in Geneva Switzerland [Art by Diane Walsh ©mediageode 2010-2015]. The official opening was Sept 2011. Here  is the working group. I travelled to Geneva to honour the opening.

In pictures – The courageous co-founders of GA-FGM, Holger Postulart (Germany, France, Switzerland) and Elisabeth Wilson (Haiti, DR of Congo, Canada, France, Switzerland) who beat all odds and have now grown a world-class recognized NGO. Next, their first wonderful official intern, Guillaume Roth, now a graduate of Political Studies (France) with a thesis on FGM featuring a summary of his internship with GA-FGM (Fr.). The one who broke the ice!
