Change Fashion, Change the Future
A video launching the Naitika (ethical fashion) project. Young people from London and East Midlands were exposed to issues around 'fast fashion' - the ever changing face of fashion that has led to overwhelming demand, which cannot be met. As a result, garment workers in Asia have to work for long hours in decrepit conditions. Young people were given a chance to express themselves through drama or recycling clothes.
Our path to survival
This is a positive story of survival and self-empowerment. Four women from the Indian state of Gujarat tell us how they came out of extreme situations of mental and physical abuse from their husbands and families. These women’s path to survival has been nurtured by AFP's partner organization AWAG, founded by Ilaben Pathak in Ahmedabad, which has been working tirelessly for the empowerment of women and for a change in the patriarchal policies of Gujarat. Film by AFP volunteers Anna Colom and Blossom Carrasco
