Silence Speaks – DREAMS Innovation Challenge Grantee Stories


Silence Speaks is an initiative created by StoryCenter, which helps individuals and organizations use storytelling and participatory media for reflection, education, and social change. Silence Speaks helps convey first-person narratives of struggle, courage, and transformation and works to ensure that these stories promote gender equality, health, and human rights around the world.

JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. partnered with StoryCenter in November 2017 to help DREAMS Innovation Challenge grantee staff tell stories (as written pieces, photo essays, and short videos) about their work in local communities and then implement storytelling and photography projects with the youth they serve. This compilation includes personal stories from the 19 grantee staff members who gave consent to publish their stories. JSI/DREAMS-IC. 2018.
