At the core of this writing program is the hope that writing will provide a way for refugees to tell their own stories. To give them a tool that will allow them to tell the world what they have endured and overcome. Their lives have been ripped away and the pain of that fact is unceasing. Through writing, the process of self-development, expression and healing can begin. The writing program will help refugees identify their assets and strengths, cultivate resiliency, and establish connections with one another and their new homeland.
