Innovation and Social Change

BWSS and ReThink have teamed up for an exciting video project which will be released during 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. ReThink’s creativity and passion for this project has merged perfectly with BWSS ongoing commitment to raise awareness through social change campaigns.

Stay tuned for more on this special project in the next few weeks, in the mean time here are some sneak peak photos from phase one of the project shot earlier this week.
