Tea and Breathing

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
― Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness

“She wondered whether the books she loved consoled her precisely because they were the manifestations of her own isolation.”

The global campaign to end female genital mutilation (FGM) found an unlikely champion in Sheikh Mohamed Saeed, a 74-year-old community leader in Sudan’s Wad Sharefai Refugee Camp. He had long witnessed the suffering of girls and women in his community but thought little of it until he was selected to attend a training on FGM supported by UNFPA.“After the trainings and the information I got exposed to, and the tough discussions we had through the course of all this, I said to myself, how can a man be a leader without taking such a challenge and fighting for positive change?” Mr. Saeed said. He is now a passionate advocate to end FGM and speaks out against it at the camp, mosque and social gatherings. Nicknamed “champion of the camp,” Mr. Saeed has also set up a men’s network, through which he and other male leaders advocate ending FGM. Read more via UNFPA.
