Digital Stories Facilitator’s Guide (English, PDF, 2.89 MB; French, PDF, 2.76 MB)
This guide serves as a companion to the “Learn From My Story” series. In order to help people to listen to and use the stories, a facilitator’s guide was created and includes: the text of each woman’s story, discussion questions tailored to each woman’s story, and key messages for facilitators to convey. The intended use of the guide is with three main audiences: health care providers, women with fistula, and community members.
Learn From My Story: Women Confront Fistula in Rural Uganda is a series of testimonials from women who have experienced obstetric fistula and wanted to share their stories in their own words, using their own photographs and drawings Eleven “digital stories” recount hardships and celebrate achievements related to the women’s daily struggles with pregnancy, loss, and relationships, as well as their search for safety, acceptance, and dignity.
