Challenge

Unlike statistics, personal stories move the world to action. This project focuses on sharing the personal stories of survivors of the Cambodian, Rwandan and Tibetan genocides, acting as both a call for justice and a call for healing for those populations. The act of sharing their stories empowers the individual, allowing them to educate subsequent generations and raise awareness throughout the world.

Solution

We gather stories first hand from survivors of atrocities and we do so with sensitivity and care. We then produce their stories using high quality professional video and audio. We share these stories with the world via our website and network.

Long-Term Impact

Providing avenues for survivors to share their stories is a means to both honor those who have died and to foster the healing process for those who have survived. Through storytelling we can raise awareness and help to combat future genocide.
