We Are In This Together.
Here at Grow we are all about looking at the positive side of life – there is enough media looking at the negative. So during this time of uncertainty and unknown all around the world, we wanted to launch a new feel-good project called Grow Voices!
We started by asking people around the world to share a 3-min selfie video diary with us each week during the COVID-19 lockdown to tell us how they are turning challenges & difficulty into positives!
Here are their stories…
