Our Stories — the world of personal storytelling
Posted by hausaonline on Thursday, June 26, 2008
I have come across another interesting project which may be helpful for Hausa learners in future. The owners of the project’s website write:
The Our Stories™ project helps people share the stories of their lives, no matter where they live or how their stories unfold. We’re providing resources to create and share personal stories from all over the world, starting with children in developing countries who are using One Laptop per Child (OLPC) computers or those who are working with UNICEF radio producers to record and share interviews. Children are asked to record the stories of elders, family members, and friends. You can listen to our growing collection of global voices on this site, which includes stories from Brazil’s Museum of the Person and stories from Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, and Pakistan (through UNICEF). Soon, stories from other countries will also be available for listening here. And in the future, we’ll make it possible for people of all ages around the world to add their content to the Our Stories site.
Unfortunately there are no Hausa stories yet. But at least there is a Hausa version of the website, and who knows, maybe there will be some Hausa stories, too, in future.
