Waris Dirie AB Layout

I'm sharing this layout because this is a foundation I support. Waris Dirie survived female mutilation/circumcision at the age of 5, in Somalia. She later escaped, and was eventually 'discovered' in London by a modeling scout. She created the Waris Dirie Foundation as a means to globally educate regarding, and to loudly protest, female circumcision and mutiliation.
Above is Waris Dirie's Manifesto. To better read, and possibly sign the Manifesto, visit here.

I was in college when I first learned of this despicable tradition. I hope it goes the way of bound feet, and soon.
