About Nancy Nielsen and Nancy Nielsen Charitable Foundation

Canadian resident Nancy Nielsen was CEO of her own company, an international medical marketing firm, until she retired in 2004 while still in her 40s.

After visiting Kenya 3 years ago and becoming aware of the threat that FGM poses to young women in rural Kenya, Nancy created the Nancy Nielsen Charitable Foundation (which also operates as the legal entity: End FGM) to fund initiatives that raise awareness of the negative effects of FGM in rural Kenya (The TransMara).

With Ruth Konchellah acting as its Kenyan agent, The Nancy Nielsen Charitable Foundation funds FGM awareness events in Kenya, events such as the annual International Zero Tolerance FGM Day run in Kilgoris, Kenya, as well as quarterly alternate right of passage ceremonies organized and managed by Ruth Konchellah. Intended to replace the traditional alternate right of passage ceremony wherein young Maasai girls receive "the cut," each alternate right of passage ceremony routinely attracts up to 100 girls from the Transmara.

It is during the traditional Maasai right of passage ceremony that girls age 10 and up receive genital cutting to make them marriageable. Without the "cut" many young Maasai men and Maasai parents do not consider girls fit for marriage.

Members of the board of The Nancy Nielsen Charitable Foundation are:

Nancy Nielsen: President
Dr. Laura Hughes: Treasurer
Julia Hughes: Secretary
Krista Lopes: Chair
