Journalists know the power of personal accounts. The story of one person, well told, can reveal the complexities of a problem, provide inspiration to overcome it, and remind us of our common humanity. The NGO Panos London aims to promote “dialogue, debate, and change.” Its ongoing series of interviews called “Illuminating Voices” brings forward the stories of individuals on the forefront of major social issues. Topics covered by these interviews include living with extreme poverty, desertification, and HIV and AIDS.
Illuminating Voices is told through written and audio stories. You may find audio stories that you want to air directly, or you may find inspiration for a local story. To view all available audio stories, go to: http://www.panos.org.uk/?lid=20785.
Audio stories are available for free download by registered users of Panos London’s website. To register, go to: http://www.panos.org.uk/register.
