TEACHING AND TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION - “YOUR STORY”
We pass on the skills of how to tell one’s own story, and the power that comes from doing so.
Through a visual storytelling curriculum and instructional sessions with girls and young women, we pass on the tools necessary to teach the next generation how they can shape the future through journalism. With lessons in writing, reporting, photography, video, and social media, the girls and women gain skills to continue spreading the news of their achievements, struggles, and triumphs that are many times ignored by traditional media. This keeps the power of the voices of girls and young women going strong even after The Through Her Eyes Project leaves.
We are working to make sure that a diversity of voices are being heard and listened to. Through the “your story” training we engage and empower young female citizen journalists around the world to tell the stories of both themselves and their communities.
