"We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to complete our trip to Mumbai... Our documentary focuses on the charities The Hair Project and Oasis India, who work together to help victims of human trafficking and child abuse in Mumbai. The project aims to teach these young girls a skill in which they can take forward and turn into a career which can help them escape the troubles they may have previously experienced.

The funding that we received from Bath Spa allowed us to cover the costs of our flights and accommodation for the two weeks we stayed in Mumbai. Without your grant we would not have been able to complete this project and for that we are all extremely thankful."
