'Goddess' music video for #TeamUNICEF

This video for the song ‘Goddess’ by up and coming US artist BANKS was inspired by UNICEF’s work on promoting children’s rights through sport and play and the Galz and Goals programme in Namibia which helps disadvantaged adolescent girls make healthy decisions on and off the playing field. Most of the girls who take part in Galz and Goals come from vulnerable families experiencing lots of social challenges. Indeed, many of the scenarios in the film are real challenges the respective girls have had to overcome in their own lives. Filmed on location in Windhoek, Namibia - including the Katutura township where the football scenes were filmed.
