“At Women for Women International we truly value creative and innovative partnerships and that is why I am delighted to be collaborating with Maria Kastani and Havaianas. I am deeply grateful to Maria, whose passion and commitment to raising the voices of women, who are normally not heard, is inspiring. It is thanks to her leadership that we will be celebrating the imaginative, colourful and inspiring creations that have been made for this campaign”
