Lebanon: Our Story

The stories we tell play a powerful role in the kind of society we build.

About the project

Lebanon, Our Story seeks to tap into the power of storytelling in order to write a new, shared story for Lebanon, one based on openness, transparency, and accountability. The project was formed in response to poor civic engagement and social erosion driven by sectarianism, in particular, the effects of this on host communities and displaced people.

The Book

The Lebanon: Our Story book brings together the stories shared by young people at the Storytelling Club, in both Arabic and English. The stories are vulnerable, powerful, and filled with hope.
