Gunjan Mhapankar

Canada

Gunjan has worked with more than 20 different organisations that address the needs of at-risk communities. Through her work, Gunjan realised there was a significant barrier to accessing essential services, due to a lack of awareness about them. As a result she founded the Digital Storytelling Project, in partnership with bc211, a non-profit organisation that specialises in providing information and referrals. The Digital Storytelling Project aims to increase public awareness about mental health, eating disorders, LGBTI+ rights, unemployment services and break down the barriers of fear and uncertainty involved in accessing them, through video and digital content.
