WAAF was founded in 1996. It is run by a staff of volunteer female activists and has about 100 members. For a relatively small organisation, it has made significant strides in Japan by raising awareness about FGM/C, through seminars and workshops, and by sending financial support to anti-FGM/C projects in Africa.
