Invisible Us. Hand in hand for the future!
Tell a story, change the world. Anything is possible together!
By: Baraka Semen
“My purpose in life is to help children and young people to pursue their dreams, to make a difference in the world, to discover and explore the possibilities and to dedicate my work to YOU, the most invisible you, who read and learn and have joy, tears and a life behind the computer. You are not invisible anymore!”
We have such a responsibility to guide our young so that they don't end up falling apart, becoming insignificant.
Let me tell you more about Invisible Us:
Everyone has a story. Somewhere in you, there is a story waiting to be told. And there is also another story waiting for you — out there in the world where people don’t have access to the tools you and I take for granted.
The power of storytelling is indisputable. Stories make us laugh, cry, hope, love and feel compassion. Stories can inspire action as they're shared across dinner tables and computer screens around the world. Stories connect people to other people and to a place, to the land and sea. Storytelling helps us connect to and make sense of the world.
And with that understanding comes a tremendous power of change, of seeing what is possible. Each of us can make a difference in the world — if we choose to open our eyes and hearts to being moved. Together, anything is possible.
Your story is my story, and I will transform these stories into a powerful tool that will change our world, and the vision of people around us.
