Dr Isatou Touray, Executive Director of GAMCOTRAP, said a lot of gains have been registered in The Gambia to eradicate FGM with the most recent historic actions taken by The Gambia government on 23 November 2015 banning FGM.

She noted that the commemoration of the International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM is another important day for Gambian women and children as it brings new lease of life in the promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
"Ten years ago, GAMCOTRAP led the first dropping of the knife in this stadium to celebrate the first group of 18 circumcisers and 63 communities. At that time, we were not sure if we would witness the banning of FGM in The Gambia during our lifetime. Nevertheless, we mustered courage and patience to continue the advocacy despite the challenges we faced across the country," Dr Touray explained.
She said in the wake of the new legislations banning FGM in The Gambia, commemoration of Zero Tolerance for FGM will strengthen awareness creation and advocacy activities.
