At Soy niña, soy importante we carry out awareness campaigns that entice interest and amplify the reach of important messages. Such is the case of the photographic mural "Listen to me, I am the present", a project that gives a microphone to the girls who participate in our initiative so they can say strong and loud what it means to a girl for them.
