About this resource

Dilemma is an interactive, media based resource aimed at opening discussion around FGM in secondary schools. This resource was developed by young people and has been used very successfully in many school settings. Using a short film in three parts, young people and teachers are encouraged to look at the challenges faced by girls around FGM and the potential pitfalls and barriers in the reporting and safeguarding chain.

Teachers and others responsible for child protection are encouraged to consider their own reticence regarding safeguarding children and young women from harmful, cultural practices. Two friends are talking in the classroom. Asha confides in her best friend Anita who then faces a difficult dilemma.

Supporting documents and downloads for this resources will be available soon.
