The Dignity Project envisions to establish a safe space for young women, where they are free to create their own personal expression through digital storytelling. We strive to raise awareness and build collective responsibility in the community. The mission of The Dignity Project is to empower young women to become agents of change. The ultimate goal is to end violence against women, protect women’s rights.

Expectations of the Program: The program is 4 consecutive weeks and the participants will learn explore themes of gender based violence in their communities and with the help of creative writing and videography experts develop their own stories using modern technology.
