Vocalizing and visualizing stories of change

Combining participatory storytelling techniques to vocalize and visualize project impact.

In June of this year, RiH carried out the end-term impact evaluation of World YWCA’s intiative ‘Promoting the realization of the right to health for young women and girls’, funded by the Finland Government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

One of the main purposes of the evaluation was to highlight the experiences of the ‘young women leads’ who took part in the program and served as agents of change by shaping new narratives on SRHR and mental health.

After collecting stories of change (using aspect sof the Most Significant Change (MSC) technique) among the young women, these stories were then used as the starting point of  a Photovoice workshop, resulting in ‘photo-stories of change’.

In combining these methods, our team was able to meaninfully engage the programme beneficiaries in the evaluation process, by collectively reflecting on the impact of the program and the effectiveness of disrupting prevailing narratives. Furthermore, we were able to identify and visualize the ‘significant changes’ experienced since becoming involved in the program.

“You can see the #Not In My Name in the back, advocating against GBV. It is the silent cry for our sisters, we are standing in solidarity with them. We are standing in a window depicting ourselves as prisoners. But we re-fuse to be bullied, to be violated. We are standing in solidarity to say: not in my name, no to GBV. Before the project started these women were not prepared to advocate in this a way”.
