#MeWe International Inc. (#MeWeIntl) innovates processes in communications and storytelling to enhance psychological wellbeing, leadership, and community engagement.
While grounded in a social entrepreneurship framework, #MeWeIntl intentionally integrates therapeutic frameworks, borrowing from narrative therapy and logotherapy, to focus more specifically on self-awareness, trauma recovery, and restoration of control and agency in a context of perceived powerlessness.
#MeWe International Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 non profit organization registered in Georgia, USA. All donations are tax deductible.

Since 2009, MeWe storytelling workshops have contributed to youth social development through the power of storytelling and the arts in North Africa, South Asia and the Middle East. The MeWe workshops and methodologies catalyze a transformative process in which young people begin to reframe narratives to remodel the world.
Me/We believes that by decentralizing the power of narrative, young people can positively redefine their story and role in society, and rebuild an ecosystem in which they can organically work towards social change and personal growth.
#MeWe’s hypothesis: An arrested narrative of oneself translates to an arrested development of the person and their community. A plural and resilient narrative of oneself can translate to unlocking the potential of the person and their community.
Trainings, activities and workshops sync neuro-education with mental health psychosocial support and leadership development all through communications and media making experiences. In the process of our methodology, participants exercise empathy, perspective taking, collaboration, and emotion regulation. Youth gain 21st century skills in script development, story-boarding strategic messaging, filmmaking, interviewing, basic editing and vlogging.
#MeWe International Inc. is piloting in numbers countries, in refugee as well as non-refugee contexts.
