Hoopoe Books is a global initiative that produces and distributes teaching stories as part of an ongoing commitment to social and emotional learning in the world’s children.
We print locally in order to supply beautifully illustrated storybooks, in all major languages, to children and their families.
Our books hitch a ride with camel libraries in Pakistan, they are passed from hand to hand in remote villages of Afghanistan. They are gifted to displaced people fleeing war and economic hardship, and they are read by regular families in the comfort of their homes, in order to encourage critical thought.
As well as our dual language books, we supply downloadable support materials to teachers and parents.
We are a non-profit, which relies on donations from like-minded supporters – who believe, as we do, that:
Thinking Children Become Thinking Adults
With your help, we have donated over 6 million books to children living in difficult circumstances – from street children in Mexico City to Afghan girls, with little or no access to education.
