A campaign by French NGO Care has been using Instagram Stories to highlight the lives of women in developing countries.

From Nov. 6 to 12, Care shared the daily lives of women from the other side of the world on its Instagram account @care_france. Agency BBDO Paris sent two documentary filmmakers to meet each woman and guided them to record their everyday life with a smartphone, just as any Instagrammer would do in France.

The campaign gave Instagram users an insight into the daily lives of a street cleaner in Madagascar, a farmer in Ecuador, an Afghan refugee in Athens, a preschool teacher in Morocco, an HIV-positive housewife in Thailand, a water bag vendor in Ivory Coast and a young mother of five in Romania. French celebrities including actor Pierre Niney and presenter Ophélie Meunier donated their own Instagram Stories to share the women's posts.

"These are women who are just like us in many ways: their spirit, those little daily moments such as meals and tender moments with their children, but who live in a complete different reality, in very precarious conditions," says Valerie Accary, president of BBDO Paris, in a statement.
