Stories of Hope and Home helps to build a community and safe space where asylum seekers and refugees can share their stories. It encourages and empowers them to discover their voice, allowing them to share their narrative in their own words, and helping to realise that their stories, individually and collectively have worth and value.
By taking these stories: expressed through storytelling, poetry, theatre and other media; to others, particularly in educational settings, the stories become powerful points of encounter with other sectors of the community, helping to educate, to change perceptions and to build positive relationships.
Through our project we:
- Provide informal English language practice
- Community building
- Help to improve self-esteem
- Educate others about asylum / refugee issues
