Buy Books, Give Back
Writing inspiring children’s books is a passion and a dream come true for me. Growing up, I did not own a book until I was 6 years old so I understand firsthand how many children in underserved communities suffer from this disparity. Now that I am an author, it is my dream to donate my books to children in underserved communities locally and across Africa with the hopes of empowering them.
All donations will receive a Gift-In-Kind Acknowledgement Letter from the non-profit partner organization. We would love to have you with us for a great cause.
What We Do
We believe diversity and representation matter and that we have a shared responsibility to teach and inspire young minds of all backgrounds to develop confidence in their own identities and abilities. The core of our books embodies the principles of Ubuntu, which means, “I am because you are”. At Nonku’s Corner, we create books and toys for children with a focus on diversity and representation.
We work with several local and global non-profit organizations to donate copies of our ‘I Celebrate Myself’ book series to children in underrepresented communities across the United States and Africa.
Why it Matters
Every child needs to own a book with characters that look like them. The impact of reading or hearing stories about people who look just like them or others in their communities can be very powerful. Diverse and inclusive books help highlight what we see and experience in the world we live in and can teach us all that diversity and inclusion are strengths. It is particularly important to teach this message to all children at an early age.
