Our vision is a world where community stories shape global outcomes.

At Folktale, we believe that storytelling and technology can re-shape the way that organizations listen, evaluate, and communicate their impact.

Our mission is to create a space where the power of storytelling drives more inclusive program design and better decision making.

The power of story

Storytelling is a tradition as old as time.

It is the tool we have always used to understand the world around us.
Stories have meaning, they unlock learning that can transform our hearts and minds and demonstrate our impact. Stories are the most positive communication tool we have for opening doors and hearing diverse voices.

With foundations in international development and working with NGO’s the Folktale platform works to collect and collate stories via mobile video, direct from their source.
