DANGERS ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL is the fourth campaign we’ve created for Human Rights Watch which summarises the journey of a 12-year old Afghan girl who is on a horror-like quest to get to her classroom, only to find the military have occupied the school. Watch the short video and read more in our portfolio. You can also watch an 8-min documentary short created as part of the same campaign which gives an insight into the issue.
The video was released on HRW’s FaceBook page on 17 October and has accumulated over 100 thousand views in the first day of its release. Global Citizen also released a detailed reportage on the project. Our overall aim was to help HRW gather funding for girls’ community schools in Afghanistan, a practice that has proven successful over the past few years. We will know how effective the campaign has been in the following months.
