16 Days Of Activism: British High Commission Sends Orange Into the Blue

On International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women, the British High Commission released brilliant orange balloons into the blue Kingston skies. Today is grey and rainy in the city. I hope this brightens your day, wherever you are!

High Commissioner David Fitton also hosted a breakfast to discuss issues of gender with Jamaicans working in the field. All these photos are from the High Commission’s Facebook page.
