Stories are everywhere. They are shaped from our daily experiences and they in turn they shape our lives.

The Gates Foundation has an ongoing partnership with the Moth, an acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling.  Through this partnership, the Moth will run storytelling workshops designed to elevate the personal stories of the incredible advocates, leaders, and development practitioners working with the Gates Foundation.

In March/April 2017, to strengthen the Gates Foundation’s new gender equality advocacy work, the Moth will be hosting 2 new workshops in Nairobi focused on women and girls.

They are looking for 24 participants—ideally those who have a background in advocacy related to gender equality—to participate in these workshops, which will help hone their own personal stories and public speaking skills.

Applications are open until February 10th, 2017. If you are a storyteller, who would like this opportunity, you can apply here. Please share widely. Past participants have found this to be a very meaningful opportunity, personally and professionally. All the best fellow storytellers.

    Hi, I’m a Nairobi-based storyteller and would really be interested in getting in touch with The Moth team coming to Nairobi. I’ve tried via their FB page but haven’t had any luck.

    Many thanks!

    I’m interested in organizing something like this in Zimbabwe, and I’d like to come to Nairobi to meet the people involved and attend the event. Can you put me in touch with the organizers? Thank you! Kate
