Children with Children: Sihiba's Story


The African Medical Research Foundation (AMREF) worked with BBH London on a campaign that makes good use of Pinterest to highlight the plight of very young African mothers. It focuses on Sihiba, a young girl in Tanzania who had a baby at 11, who has been given an iPhone and a Pinterest page in order to record the things she needs in daily life. AMREF wants to highlight thecontrast between Western lives with lists of 'things we want' (cakes, shoes etc.) and women who actually need things (clean water, food); it's encouraging the Pinterest community to share and comment on her images.

Digital advertisment created by BBH, United Kingdom for AMREF, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.
