V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against all women (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence), girls and the planet. V-Day operates as a “virtual organization” so that we keep administrative costs low. V-Day’s small staff works in regions throughout the U.S. and around the world to empower local networks and volunteers to raise awareness and funds to end the violence. V (formerly known as Eve Ensler), V-Day’s founder and artistic director, volunteers her time, creative energy and vision, and together with our worldwide group of dedicated organizers has raised over $120 million and educated millions about the issues of violence against women and girls. V-Day has crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs, as well as safe houses in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq and Kenya.

The two V-Day Safe Houses for the Girls in Kenya in the towns of Narok and Sakutiek – were established for young women and girls fleeing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and early childhood marriage. Led by Agnes Pareyio, an internationally recognized leader, they provide a safe haven for girls escaping from FGM and early marriage – a place where young women can safely celebrate an alternative “rite of passage,” enabling Masai women to follow their tradition without undergoing the cut.
Agnes was named the United Nations in Kenya Person of the Year (2005) and she is the founder of the Tasaru Ntomonok Initiative. Her grassroots work with families, young girls, cultural leaders, and politicians in Kenya is actively reducing the rates of girls who undergo the cut. As a survivor of FGM, Agnes has dedicated her life providing safe alternative rites of passage into womanhood for Kenyan girls.
