Tell a Story!
Once upon a time there was a child named Renu who loved listening to stories. Sadly, she had finished all the stories from her story book and because of the lockdown she could not get another story book. Would you like to help Renu and all the many children out there who love stories by telling your stories or reciting classic stories to them? Then come join our campaign “Tell a Story.” It is iVolunteer’s largest virtual volunteering opportunity. Reaching out to everyone who has a smart phone in India and can speak any Indian Language to bring a smile to a child's face.
To create a story bank for children of the age group of 4 to 10 years in different Indian languages.
What are we going to do with these stories?
iVolunteer has connected to many NGOs around India who work with children. We will share these audio stories with them so that they can play it for the children they work with. We would appreciate it if the content was in vernacular language due to the dearth of content out there. Languages could be Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Punjabi, Telegu, Kannada, Malayalam, Konkani, Rajasthani - or just a regional dialect too!
What do you need?
1. A simple voice recorder (most mobile phones already have one) 2. A story (or more!) that would interest a child - folk lore, something your grnadmother shared with you or just write your own 3. Voices Record it in your own voice or gather your family and friends to play different roles and record one with multiple voices! To get you started, we will refer you to a helpful guide on creating, recording and sharing the stories
Who can participate?
Anyone who loves reading and would like to share their skill with children who are eager to listen to stories.
