From Seeds of Empowerment Team of XRI Global:
Children love to tell stories. However, in some parts of the world, their creative voices are never heard. Seeds of Empowerment, a non-profit arm of XRI, Inc. 501C(3 ) organization, is determined to provide these children with a voice.
The Seeds team collects childrens stories through storytelling competitions in underprivileged urban slums or remote rural villages in the developing world. The winning stories are translated, illustrated, and published. Any revenue generated from the published stories is sent back to the child who won the competition.
The goal of this program is to raise $30 a month for each child who wins a story competition. This money will pay for his or her educational needs, including textbooks, uniforms, and one meal a day.
This story is from a child living in Rwanda. The child wished to convey the value of family love. Please enjoy the story, and if you wish to write to the child, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
