Our Lives Our Stories is an international community project creating global resiliency through participatory story telling and tools sharing.

You are invited to join a global movement of people sharing their stories of survival and the tools they’ve used to overcome personal struggle to live fuller lives.

Together we are building a resiliency network. It is through the knowledge that no one is alone on their journey that we come to realize the strength found in  togetherness.

Your life story and experiences have an important part to play in healing our global community. It is through the candid bravery of people just like you, that those who have yet to find their voice gather the strength to do so.

Add your thread to the tapestry of courage.
