Our Story

Capture the epic life stories of your grandparents or a family member and you’re sure to be amazed by what you find. Let’s learn from their lessons in community building, migration, survival and the challenges they faced and overcame.

 

Do you find due to current lockdown measures due to Covid-19 it makes it difficult for you to meet your family members? Are you staying in touch by phone, Facetime and Zoom calls? Why not get the most of your conversations by diving into their past. To help you with that, we’ve created a list of interview questions you can ask your family members to start documenting their amazing contributions and inspirational experiences. After you sign up, you will get an email of the list of questions you can ask, submit those to us on the google form and once we've received your loved will receive an ebook as a gift with their story- something to treasure indefinitely. 

 

All interviewees will receive an e-book as a gift with their story.

 

A panel of judges will also review the submissions and we’ll publish the best entries online!

Here’s what they’ll be looking for:

·         A well-written submission

·         An inspiring interview

·         Gender balance

·         An interview that provides lessons in one of the following theme areas:

             o   community building,

             o   migration,

             o   survival and

             o   the challenges they faced and overcame

It's time we capture our grandparent's and elders' inspiring stories and give them a gift the whole family can treasure.  Simply, click here to sign-up today.

Once you sign-up, you’ll have until June 30, 2020 to submit your final interview. Contact [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.
