RTI International is partnering with the End FGM/C US Network and nationally recognized FGM/C experts to develop and execute the Addressing FGM/C Training and Technical Assistance Program (AFTTAP). AFTTAP will develop an outreach campaign toolkit that will include sectoral-specific strategies to foster community-based prevention of FGM/C, identify at-risk individuals, and respond to FGM/C survivors and situations in impactful, safe, and culturally appropriate ways. AFTTAP will support project sites in meeting the goals of this program, using proven strategies for tailored and proactive TTA, including group-level approaches such as grantee meetings, webinars, virtual roundtables, and briefs; individual-level approaches such as phone and video-conferencing; and sustainable materials and resources supporting future initiatives.
