Resonate is a non-profit that works mainly in Rwanda to help empower women and girls through self-discovery and storytelling. They work with women, men, girls, and boys to work toward gender equality by providing training rooted in storytelling, but also by attempting to break down barriers that exist between having access to skills and education, and having the agency and self-confidence to take advantage of opportunity.
Mission Statement: Resonate uses storytelling to empower women and girls to build self-confidence and unlock leadership potential.
Seed Grant. The Skees Family Foundation began working with Resonate in 2015 for several reasons. We think that storytelling is one of the biggest tools we have to raise awareness and promote empowerment throughout the world. Resonate uses these tactics to train women and girls how to tell their stories and how to make a difference for themselves and their communities.
