To reiterate the importance of story telling and bring the awareness about the impact it can create in the young minds, Shyam Penumaka, Hyderabad Chapter coordinator, Youth For Seva; Venkat Diusari, City Coordinator, Arunmayee Jandyam, Volunteer management Programs coordinator, Mahendar Kodicherla, Volunteer Management coordinator of Youth For unveiled the STORY_FIED poster, at Press Conference held at the Banjarahills office of Youth For Seva.
Stories are powerful. They help inculcate values, and entertain us too! They make us see things in a new light and think in ways we’ve never thought before. Telling stories is a large part of what makes people connected to each other. Story telling was a family affair earlier where our grand parents used to narrate many stories. But with the current technological influences, it is hard to find such instances in many homes.
Inorder to bring back this custom, and encourage the art of story telling, YFS is organizing this event where in the volunteers go to schools, slums, orphanages and narrate an inspirational story to the students.
Story-fied is the event which will be conducted across 500 locations in the twin cities with a target of 10,000 volunteers who will be narrating a story based on the theme of 'Resilience' for 1 million children from the underserved communities, over a single weekend (July 21st - July 23rd, 2017).
Corporates like Dell, Google and many IT companies are supporting this event by encouraging their employees to participate ein this event.. In addition students from many colleges, teachers and people from various backgrounds are also supporting the event. And Youth For Seva requests all to come forward and be a part of this mega volunteering event.
