Katrien studied Social Science at the VUB and obtained a Masters Degree in Gender Studies at the University of Utrecht. She has worked for GAMS Belgium since 2014. She coordinates the activites in Flanders working in both Brussels and Antwerp where the Flanders Branch is located. “I accompany men as well as women individually. Every last Friday of the month, group activities are held in Antwerp, where we discuss different topics. Finally we follow reports relative to situations involving the risk of FGM.”

The Flanders Branch also provides made-to-measure training courses around FGM and every year initiates innovative projects with the backing of investors.
