The Family Story Project strengthens writing skills and family relationships! 


"Thanks to the Family Project, I learned a lot more about where my family comes from, what they have been through, especially regarding my grandmother. I had no clue how difficult her childhood was. It is definitely impressive to see how far she has come and how hard she has worked to now have the beautiful family she has dreamed of. She is living proof that even if you get a "bad start" in life, you decide how your future will be; you either feel bad your whole life about it or you make the best out of the time you have."
