Dear Colleagues,


RAINBO (Research, Action and Information Network for the Bodily Integrity of
Women) is pleased to announce the launching of a new website
www.amanitare.org  for one of our initiatives, AMANITARE, the African
Partnership for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and
Girls. We have also updated our website www.rainbo.org. Following are brief
descriptions of the work of RAINBO and AMANITARE:

RAINBO - the Research, Action and Information Network for the Bodily
Integrity of Women - www.rainbo.org is an international not-for-profit
organization working on issues that intersect women's health and human
rights. With a history of work on Female Circumcision/Female Genital
Mutilation (FC/FGM), RAINBO has gained institutional and technical expertise
in dealing with difficult women's health and rights issues in Africa and in
African immigrant and refugee communities. RAINBO's ultimate goal is to
promote and protect women's sexual and reproductive health and rights.

AMANITARE - the African Partnership for Sexual and Reproductive Health and
Rights of Women and Girls - www.amanitare.org was launched in Uganda in
2000, and is coordinated by RAINBO. AMANITARE's goal is to build an
influential social movement to institutionalize the recognition of African
women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health rights as fundamental to
their civil and human rights. AMANITARE is organized into three action
groups, each coordinated by an African NGO:

1. Advocating for Freedom from Gender-Based Violence
2. Integrating Sexual and Reproductive Rights into Health Services
3. Reaching-Out to New Generations

I am attaching for your easy reference, an AMANITARE fact sheet which
features the slogan and logo developed for the partnership. This fact sheet
will give you a quick and concise overview of the partnership's focus.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any more information.

Kind Regards,

Nadia C. Fuleihan
