Mission Statement

To educate, entertain and empower children through African heritage content.

Description

Only 17% of published children's books in South Africa are in local languages or reflect an African context. The dearth of culturally and contextually relevant materials impacts negatively on literacy levels, confidence and creating a culture of reading amongst children. Puo is addressing this issue by project managing the creation and supply of relevant materials; and training teachers on using the educational materials in their classroom. Our aim is to educate, entertain and empower children through South African languages and heritage.

Puo’s original Lula & Lebo TM series includes storybooks, First Words flashcards; Learn to Count puzzles; My Body posters; and I love Africa t-shirts, in African languages with English translations. Our materials are targeted at young children, and teach relevant topics in a fun way featuring Lula, her brother Lebo and his pet chameleon Lem. The series is available online at www.puo.co.za/products .
