Ethical Storytelling (Kenya)


Embrace the power of visuals and videos in storytelling! The Azadi Kenya-Ethical Storytelling
project aims to create an ethical and accessible archive for survivors of trafficking, utilizing the
power of visuals and videos in storytelling. Through a fellowship program, survivor leaders are
being trained in photography, videography, and ethical storytelling techniques. The project also
incorporates art therapy as a means to promote healing and recovery from trauma. By adopting
a survivor-led storytelling approach, the project seeks to address the misrepresentation of
survivor experiences and the lack of representation and inclusion in policy processes. The
project’s goals encompass promoting ethical storytelling, focusing on mental health and well-
being, providing capacity development for survivor leaders, and raising awareness through
policy and advocacy efforts. The archive will serve as a resource accessible to society at large,
aiming to educate and inspire change within the anti-trafficking space. An essential aspect of
the project lies in survivor leadership and advocacy, with a survivor leader spearheading the
initiative. The project recognizes the unique authenticity of each survivor’s story and highlights
the importance of their voices in shaping understanding and responses to trafficking: No one
can tell your story with the same authenticity as you.
