Our storytellers live in Ferentari, a Bucharest neighborhood that shelters one of its most disenfranchised communities and where a significant number of Roma children are exposed to exclusion, discrimination, and sometimes abuse. Their daily life might be marred by insecurity and inequality, and yet when they come together, they open up: they are bright, playful, and inquisitive. Our storytellers are among the 200 children and teenagers currently engaged in a wide variety of activities offered by The Alternative Education Club, including art, journalism, and storytelling workshops; street-dance and sports; remedial education and mentoring. 

They are ready to become the heroes of their own narratives and share their stories with you!
