At Kunda Kids, we believe in the importance of promoting diversity and inclusion in children's literature and media. Our mission is to create engaging and inspiring stories that celebrate African culture and promote essential soft skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, and kindness.
We envision a world where children of all backgrounds can see themselves represented in the stories they read. By infusing African culture into modern storylines with inspiring and adventurous characters, we hope to create a positive impact on children's development and help to bridge the gap between cultures.

Our books are available in over 130 countries and 300+ schools and libraries worldwide. We have sold over 20k books in just two years and continue to grow.
