Thank you Aneeta. Your workshop was absolutely amazing! Our students were in awe of you and your delivery and the passion you injected into what is an extremely important topic. The vast majority of the students believed, prior to your workshops that they already knew about FGM and hadn't realised the sheer extent of the issue facing so many young and vulnerable women. Both Y12 and Y13 students have spoken with me about your books and have gained so much form them.

Lesson Plans

Teaching about both Forced Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is an important part of a school’s approach to safeguarding and child protection.

In liaison with Freedom Charity, the PSHE Association has produced separate accredited lesson plans, with teachers’ notes and accompanying resources, on Forced Marriage and FGM, highlighting the issues and covering the relevant statutory requirements.

Used in conjunction with Freedom’s helpful books, which clearly illustrate these topics in story form, the plans are designed to support all educators in delivering presentations and workshops to children across Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 in a sensitive and age-appropriate way.

Feedback from Lesson Plans

To date, Freedom Charity has worked with over 160 schools in the UK and has donated many thousands of copies of Aneeta Prem’s novels, “But It’s Not Fair”, and “Cut Flowers” to children, students, education professionals and libraries. Aneeta’s innovative and expert presentations, combined with the novels and PSHE Association lesson plans, provide students across all relevant Key Stages with the knowledge to engage with, and discuss, these complex human rights issues. Aneeta’s school visits and online presentations are highly acclaimed and acknowledged as being vital in changing attitudes and combatting the crimes of Dishonour Abuse (DiA), Forced Marriage and FGM. Many leading professionals, including Baroness Nicky Morgan (former MP and Secretary of State for Education) and Di Harrill MBE (Former Head of PSHE) have attended the school sessions and have thoroughly recommended them for use in all schools.
