Our Impact

Digital Storytelling

About

Digital storytelling is a creative, potentially transformative, participatory process which can help us gain deeper understanding into the multiple and complex ways that people’s lives are affected by the family experience.

Storytellers from India, Kenya, Mexico, Egypt, Guyana, Russia, South Africa and Brazil made and shared heartfelt experiences that illustrate the importance of family. While most of the storytellers are children, some are adults; demonstrating that the need for family support does not end with childhood.

Our decision to use digital storyteling is part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring decision-makers acknowledge the importance and complexity of ‘family’ in policy making at the global and national level.
