A Voice for the Voiceless

Washington DC

The Banu Foundation seeks to educate and inform policy-makers, media, and broader publics about the tremendous challenges facing at-risk girls and women. It seeks to do so through partnerships with independent film-makers, journalists, bloggers, and others in all forms of media. The Banu Foundation has supported the work of 18th Street Films, producer of the Tribeca Audience Award-winning film, War Child.

The Banu Foundation is currently in talks with media organizations and independent professionals to produce a series of short films and other media on the problem of female human trafficking.
