Global Stories Initiative

 

The Global Stories Initiative is sponsored by Expanse of Hope, a UK nonprofit, that seeks to raise awareness of the diverse perspectives and experiences revealed by the stories of people around the world.

Everyone has a story — a story of hopes, dreams, losses and victories.  The Global Stories Initiative seeks to share those narratives that bring us all together, that reveal the singularity of humanity and break down the barriers between cultures, economic classes, ethnicities and religions.

 

But, stories are just the beginning.  With your help, we will take what we learn, and, together, advance dignified and sustainable strategies that address the needs presented.

We’re neighbors.  We want to sit around the table as equal participants in a common story arc.  We hope you find stories here from different journeys, but with a heart that resonates with your own and invokes us all to action.

Welcome.  Pull up a chair.  Stay a while.  And pass it on.

If you would like to take part in raising global awareness of the perspectives and experiences of people in your community; please contact us, and we’ll let you know how you can get involved!
