THE STORYLINES PROJECT
Hearing another person’s story broadens horizons, brings empathy and understanding. It takes courage to learn something new—a language, an idea, a way of life. It takes courage to tell a story.
The Storylines Project heralds the importance of literacy. Beautiful and utilitarian, words pay bills, explain medicine bottles, identify streets, and make everything from poems to newspapers to birth certificates possible. Most important of all, words allow us to know each another, to communicate, to learn and grow.
The Storylines Project was created by author Neela Vaswani of the NCV Foundation—a nonprofit research and education organization based in New York.
