Millennium Fellowship Project: Tales without Borders

Tales without borders: Stories for mentorship.

This project is a collaboration with fellows taking the same Sdg 4 on quality education.

We are a youth led initiative from Kenyatta university main campus, who came up with an idea to help school going children from schools around to get their voices and to stand strong enough to embrace and to tell stories. We believe that through telling stories of ourselves and those of African heroes and heroines will enhance our ability to recall and also rekindle the spirit of readership wanting to get a touch/ a read on more stories looking forward to share the same with our peers. We are looking forward and aiming to work closely with schools in the shanty outskirts of town and in communities where kids have been doomed to believe that there is no good story that could come from their background.We aim at inspiring students through storytelling. Also collecting books from well-wishers and distributing them to this schools and making follow ups on the acceptance and the response from these pupils. By provision of this books we believe that it will boost their language eloquence Kiswahili/ English and with the requisite eloquence we are looking at an empowered story telling generation.We aim to have a plan to lay boundaries to the kind/ origin of books and stories that we proceed to give but given chance and opportunity we would like to grow from within and by these we would like as much as possible to tell indigenous stories as we believe that this way we will have promoted the intercultural understanding of our different communities right from the early ages of their growth, now and the prospects in the future. Through this we will have promoted our diverse cultures and also promoted the stories put to pen by our very own Kenyan bled authors. This therefore is an appeal to our authors to help us in advancing their literal worksWe want to have a sustainable culture of storytelling, something that will grow with the growing generation and not succumb to the dwindling culture of reading here in Kenya.
