A global human rights project
Collecting and sharing stories of Human Rights Defenders around the world, leading up to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
I Defend Rights needed a way to create and share a global archive of hundreds of stories from people all over the world, in multiple languages, in a fairly short period of time. They sought a solution that:
- was available in English, Spanish and French
- was easy enough to use by people who have a computer but are not necessarily regular users of technology
- provided a dashboard that allowed project managers to easily review, publish and share a large number of stories
Memria provided the following tools to help I Defend Rights collect and distribute their stories of human rights defenders:
- Web-based platform for collecting, reviewing and sharing stories
- A dedicated project page where the collection of stories in each language could be viewed (English, Spanish, and French stories)
- Story Booth setup at the Human Rights Defenders World Summit in Paris
- 'Roving Reporter' Chromebook that was used to collect stories 'interview-style' throughout the summit
- Story widget that the I Defend Rights team could use to embed published stories on their own website
Keene Valley Library Association (KVLA)
Working with the KVLA and OurStoryBridge, Memria provided the tools and platform to help create the MyAdirondackStory project, a local history and story-telling project that has fostered community engagement and increased involvement with the library.
A platform to share stories of health workers in conflict zones
Even before Covid (and still), health workers experience massive challenges, espeiclaly in conflict zone. Memria helped this project for health workers in regions facing armed conflict or violence to tell their stories in their own words and voices and share them with a global audience.
