Tell a Story!

Project Background

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, Gujrati, Konkani etc.

1. Use a simple voice recorder. Please refer to the instructions manual to learn more
2. If you are writing your own stories. Please refer to the instructions manual
3. We would really appreciate vernacular language stories

5. Once you have recorded the story you can send us the audio file on danica@ivolunteer.org.in
