Every person has a story that matters. Some stories bring hope and encouragement, whereas others tell of hurt and heartache. But always there will be someone out there who needs to hear the story that only you can tell.
We believe the world would be a better place if we all shared our stories.
When we reveal ourselves in real ways through personal story, we can truly belong. Stories build connection because they show us our shared humanity and underscore our similarities. Stories foster compassion and empathy, and increase our understanding of people who are different from us. Stories start conversations and encourage action.
We believe in the transformative power of personal stories.
Personal stories help kids develop a sense of belonging and identity; they build self-esteem and resilience. Stories tell us who we are, illuminate our hopes and dreams, and heal our sorrows. They help us to realise our potential, grow our deepest longings into reality, and create meaning from life.
We can change the world one story at a time.
We are all original masterpieces, made up of all the stories we have lived, and the ones we have heard. Each story piece – no matter how big or small – has the potential to add light to the world. Let’s join together to make the world a richer place one story at a time.
