As part of the ‘CANDID Voices” project developed by the Sri Lanka Development Journalist Forum, they challenged the young journalists to shoot short videos to showcase women’s empowerment across the island.
Fortunately for us, they deemed the stories of six of the BIZ+ grantees as being worthy of the topic.
The following is a link to the six videos that describes the impact the business has had on the lives and families of their female staff. Link to six videos.
I was particularly interested in three of the videos, purely because of my involvement in building business capacity for these particular businesses over the past six months. So if you do not have a ton of time, at least check out these ones!
