Lily Kuo of The Guardian describes the first 100 days in Wuhan after the coronavirus pandemic as the days that changed the world. There has never been a time in modern history where all of humanity was facing the same challenge, when we were all interconnected by crisis.

Series III: Stories from Kenya

Having tools to verbalize who we are and how we feel is an integral part of storytelling. At Whose Stories Will We Hear, we do not only share authentic African stories, we honour the voices within these stories. We believe that every story is worthy of being heard. In our attempt to understand and share African stories, we also recognize that our role is not limited to publishing these stories but it is extended to prioritizing the narrative of the communities that have given us the privilege of collaborating with them. At WSWWH we recognize that we need storytelling. It is here we say: you belong and your story matters.

We are so delighted to present a glimpse of our latest work Series II: Video Stories from Dakar with these three stories, which embody the strength, innovation and kindness that carry our African stories.

To preserve and protect the storyteller’s authentic voice, the stories are published in their original language (Wolof, French, English). As the series evolves, we plan to technically edit the footage and add subtitles to increase access.
