Pampering local mothers in French suburb of Rosny-sous-Bois

Teenagers from the Boissière neighbourhood of Rosny-sous-Bois outside Paris wanted to show their appreciation for local mothers by organising a day of spa treatment and pampering. Full of motivation after the successful event, they also launched the neighbourhood’s first youth association. We went to meet them.


Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France’s disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French “banlieues”.
