Origin of foundation
The foundation was raised by Augustine Niaré-Van der Zanden in 2014. Augustine was born and raised in Mali.
At a young age she started campaigning against female circumcision in her family. Several years later she started two local campaign groups, Tagnè (Progress) and Mousso Dambé (A woman's dignity).
Due to a lack of funding, however, in 2014 she founded Dutch Stichting Stop Vrouwenbesnijdenis (End Female Circumcision).
