Women of the World

The Vavengers will be hosting a fundraiser and solo exhibition of my work to raise money for FGM survivors. I will be exhibiting a cross section of my work focusing on female stories.

The Vavengers (‘Vagina Avengers’) are a collective started in 2015, made up of people of different ages, cultural backgrounds, genders and nationalities working together and putting on events towards a common goal: To End FGM. All of the proceeds from our events go directly to the charities we work with. We are not a registered charity as we feel our fundraising efforts are best applied to pre existing charities. Our fundraising is all survivor led, meaning we work with survivors of FGM to get advice on where the funds raised should go.
