Trust binds us

Com Fio focused on bringing awareness to the fact that violence against women is a problem that should be addressed for and by everyone. The message of the Com Fio campaign was based on positive values that bind us together as a community: trust, responsibility, equality, and respect. The team developed a series of videos with interviews of several women who work at or were assisted by the Center of Cape Women - a feminist organization whose mission is to support and assist women in vulnerable conditions.
