Making T-shirts could serve as one small step in connecting Lebanese university students with migrant domestic workers.Insan's T-shirt design competition, which began on Feb. 24 and is accepting applications through April 21, is one of a series of creative projects that the NGO has undertaken over the past several years to raise awareness of the plight of domestic workers. They hosted a series of piano concerts four years ago, teamed up with local Lebanese designers to put on a fashion show of migrant workers' ethnic clothing two years ago and last year, they carried out a campaign called Walk the City, in which students spent the day walking through Beirut with the migrant workers in order to get to know them.
