    28 Too Many is a values based charity working to end female genital mutilation (FGM). Our primary focus is on research and enabling local initiatives to end FGM in the 28 African countries where it is practised and in other countries across the world where members of those communities have migrated. We provide knowledge, tools, best practice models and support networks which help anti-FGM campaigners and organisations working with communities to bring about sustainable change to end FGM. We also network and advocate for the global eradication of FGM, working closely with other charities and organisations in the violence against women sector and participating in global campaigns, such as the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence. 28 Too Many won the TrustLaw Collaboration Award in 2018 and the Best Collaborative Initiative Award at the LawyerMag Awards in 2019 for its unprecedented legal research series reports ("The Law and FGM" reports).
