Catwalk to Freedom helps South Sudanese girls model full potential

If girls are given the opportunity to explore their “full potential”, there would be many fewer child marriages across South Sudan.

That’s the firm stance of Nyagoa Nyuon, who grew up in South Sudan and is the founder and Creative Director of the fashion label, House of Bany, based in Kenya.

She is spearheading the Catwalk to Freedom initiative, which aims to reduce child marriages by empowering girls themselves, through modeling and photography.
