Dear Friends and supporters of NSMF and AFESIP,
We are truly appreciative of your continued support and heartfelt care & concern for the young women and girls who are victims of trafficking, exploitation and indentured slavery. They need your help and your generous contributions are changing their lives.
Recently, a group of our volunteers have launched a fundraising and awareness raising initiative, “The Color of Freedom Keep the Girls Safe Campaign”
In collaboration with Parsons New School of Design, Monica Watkins, Ford Model and Founder of NYC based anti-trafficking non-profit Beauty for Freedom, and Pamela Bell, Founder of the activism-based product design studio Prinkshop have teamed up to create THE COLOR OF FREEDOM | KEEP THE GIRLS SAFE Campaign, to help raise funds and awareness for The New Somaly Mam Fund|Voices for Change/AFESIP Cambodia.
The campaign’s mission is to engage the industries of Beauty and Fashion as powerful allies in the fight to end sex trafficking and to create an innovative, sustainable platform that will provide a means to raise awareness, accountability, and financial contributions for charitable foundations and non-profits who fight this battle on the front lines. Together, we work to end the trafficking in persons once and for all!
The first installment of “The Color of Freedom”, a video and photo series created by CTM Sisters Productions and sponsored by Parsons New School of Design will featureSuper Model Diandra Forrest, a human-rights activist, promoting equality for Albinism. Diandra, an Albino herself works with the UN to advocate an end to violence against the Albino communities in Africa. Working to end sex trafficking is a natural fit with Diandra’s worldwide humanitarian efforts providing a unique perspective between the two issues. Video editor and artist, Sheila Maria Lobo, stylized the moving imagery with signature surrealist elements in order to add reflection on an internal journey from chaos towards enlightenment. Creative Consultant and make-up artist Sokphalla Ban utilized powdered pigments (holi colors) to illustrate freedom in the photo essay and video.
Prinkshop Founder Pamela Bell has created a signature t-shirt as the initial product feature for the campaign. For each “Keep The Girls Safe” t-shirt, sold, US$7.50 will be donated to NSMF/ AFESIP.
