A web portal for stories

Unicef, per Child One Laptop and Google have joined together to set up a portal of stories.

This portal, www.ourstories.org, is meant to be a repository of traditional stories from various places.

The portal is part of the attempt by the three agencies to preserve folktales and through them, different cultures.

Under this project, children will write, narrate and upload folk stories which they have heard from grandmothers, friends and local people.

People all over the world will be able to read these stories online and can also locate the places from which these stories come using Google Map.

This will facilitate interaction between different cultures and make people aware of their common humanity.
