For the third year, the Kering Corporate Foundation and the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund will present in June 2013 the Spotlighting Women Documentary Awards. Three film projects will be chosen that illuminate the courage, compassion, extraordinary strength of character, and contributions of women from around the world
Each winner will receive a grant of 50 000 $ and a year-round support from Tribeca Film Institute, including one guidance and consultation to help each film to reach completion, enter the marketplace, and find broader audiences for their work.
Since 2009, the Kering Foundation supports AFESIP (“Agir pour les femmes en situation précaire”) founded in 1996 in Cambodia by Somaly Mam, a former victim of trafficking and sexual exploitation.
The objectives are to address all of the consequences of human trafficking, including preventative measures, shelter, protection and care, until social and economic reintegration of the victims.
On the occasion of the fourth annual Anti-Trafficking Day in Cambodia, AFESIP draws a report of its action in 2012 : 249 women and girls have received medical and psychological care in its three partner shelters in Cambodia. 100% of shelter residents received basic education, and 30 residents were reintegrated as entrepreneurs with start-up microbusiness grants. Over 1,000 women and girls visited the free medical clinic for consultations, counselling, and treatment. 13 court cases of trafficking and abuse have ended in conviction.
The three projects supported by the Kering Foundation did make a difference in raising awareness on violence against women awareness:
