Rahma in Washington, DC
Save Print
Date Posted 11/02/2017
Employment Type Fulltime
Application Deadline Open until filled

Help end Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) with an award winning organization recognized by The White House, met President Obama and featured in The Huffington Post.

RAHMA Is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Washington, DC that addresses HIV/AIDS in faith communities through education, advocacy and empowerment.

Why the focus on FGM/C?

According to a study by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Women's Health and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over a half million women and girls in the US are at risk or survivors of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C).

How is RAHMA Addressing FGM/C?

RAHMA has partnered with The George Washington University (GWU), through a grant from HHS to address FGM/C in the Washington DC Metropolitan area, where over 51,000 women and girls are at risk. There is an intersection between HIV/AIDS and FGM/C, which allows RAHMA to stay inline with its mission.

The Intern

RAHMA is seeking a highly-motivated individual to serve as the End FGM Intern for the 2017 Spring Semester. The End FGM intern will work at least 8 hours a week (with opportunities to work more) and report to the Executive Director.
