I'll Tell You My Story is a two-week workshop that teaches teenaged refugee girls about writing their story, illustrating it with photos they've taken, and participating in the creation of a short film. Our goal is to show them that their voice is important, that despite their current difficulties they are not forgotten, and that it is possible to imagine a self-sustaining career through the communicative arts. It is an ambitious two weeks that we believe has lasting effects, allowing many of the girls to reinterpret their futures and to remember what it is to hope.
We had an amazing workshop in Uganda in January 2020 and, as soon as it is safe to travel again, we're looking forward to returning to Uganda and going to Tanzania as well. We need $1,000 per participant, or, $15,000 per workshop. For information on how the money is used, please visit our website at www.illtellyoumystory.com and email us. We'll be happy to answer your questions.We hope you'll take a moment to watch the work on our website, as well. The participants are amazing young women, and we want to share their stories with the world!
